Zeinab Alhashemi (UAE) likes to tell a story visually and enjoys the challenge of experimenting with new materials and techniques with every new project. She uses contemporary media but often takes her subject matter from the cultural traditions of her native UAE. In previous projects Zeinab has created mixed media works with design elements from popular, commercially available Emirati products. In her work, she is interested in reaching beyond the art audience to the wider public.

Zeinab has a BA in Arts and Science, specialising in Multimedia Design, from Zayed University. In 2010 she showed work in the UAE Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo and in 2011. She has exhibited in Poems From the Desert and UAE: A work of Art, Ara Gallery; Sikka Art Fair; MinD – Made in Dubai; DUCTAC; and participated in the Abu Dhabi Airport Center Project for F1.
