Afra AlDhaheri

Mixed Media

Afra Al Dhaheri is an artist inspired by the nature of her surroundings. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1988, but was raised in the UAE, she attempts to express herself through various mediums including mixed media, drawing, painting, installation, photography, and printmaking.

Afra is a very active and social artist in her field; she has been a part of “Emirati Expressions 2011”, an intern at the Guggenheim Museum New York, and an intern at the Venice Biennale 2011. Her exposure to different art scenes influences her work dramatically as she transforms her experiences into bodies of artwork. Recently she completed Sheikha Salama Emerging Artists Fellowship in collaboration with Rhode Island School of Design, amongst 14 other artists who were carefully selected.
