Abdulla Lutfi

Abdulla Lutfi is a young, dynamic Emirati artist who works from the ‘Next Chapter’ studio at Tashkeel–House 10, Al Fahidi. His passion for art stems from his amazing attention to detail, a black and white view of the world and his sharp sense of humour. Abdulla’s distinct black and white drawings of the UAE skylines and landscape usually feature an exaggerated humorous glimpse of everyday Emirati life. As an artist on the Autistic spectrum, Abdulla sees and interprets the world in a unique, nonconventional way. He uses his condition as an advantage because his artwork communicates a powerful message and view of his world that is frequently not represented.

Having already had a couple of sold-out solo exhibitions, he has fulfilled several commissions from hotels, bank and retais stores under Majid Al Futtaim and Dubai International Airport. Abdulla has illustrated a children’s colouring book commissioned by the Embassy of the UAE in Washington D.C.. He also gives speed drawing workshops and demos to schools and other entities. Abdulla continues to grow as a person and as a gifted artist. He continues to peer tutor his fellow artists, exhibit in various media styles and expand his repertoire. He aspires to raise awareness and promote inclusion of the special needs community through his artwork.
