Maitha Demithan (UAE) is an Emirati artist born in Dubai in 1989. Her work combines several mediums; photography, scanography, painting, drawing and photo transfers. The first drawings she created were sketched in the sand which then formed her appreciation for colour, texture, line and shadow.

Maitha’s most successful exhibition was in 2009, Documentation at Tashkeel where her first scanned self portraits featured. Later in 2009, she participated in Across the Gulf, a group show that took part in the Brisbane Biennial. Other group shows include Emerge in Venice,  Emirati Vision in Berlin, and the Biladi exhibition at the UAE Pavilion during the Shanghai Expo 2010.
