Hamdan Buti Al Shamsi

Hamdan Buti Al Shamsi was born in Al Ain and is a self-taught artist, photographer, graphic designer and writer. His mother used to call him ‘Qurtas’ (sheets of paper) because as a child, all he wanted from the grocery store was colouring books. An alumnus of Campus Art Dubai and Salama Bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship, he has participated in shows including ‘Three Generations’ (Abu Dhabi, 2013–14) and ‘Emirati Insights’ (Abu Dhabi, 2015), ‘Past Forward: Contemporary Art from the Emirates’ (USA tour, 2014) and has exhibited at FN Designs, SIKKA Art Fair, Maraya Art Centre, Marsam Mattar and Tashkeel. He has received commissions from Qattara Arts Centre, Abu Dhabi Airports and EMAAR. He was one of 21 artists to be commissioned for the EXPO2020 campaign ‘For Everyone’.

Hamdan joined Tashkeel in 2014 as Member 308. He has exhibited in ‘Portrait of a Generation’ (2010), ‘Made in Tashkeel’ (2010, 2011) and ‘As the Saying Goes’ (2011).
