NOURA RAMAHI (Page under Construction )
Noura Ali Ramahi is a Lebanese-born Emirati artist who began exploring her practice in the early 1990’s. In her high-school days, Noura experimented with pencil and charcoal drawings as well as silk painting. During her university years in Beirut, she was drawn to the hand crafted clay pottery markets and began painting on clay. Using the same acrylic medium she used on clay, she began, in the late 1990’s, to produce paintings on paper and canvas. Her work is abstract expressionist with the human figure being a prevailing subject in many of her paintings. She has produced artworks on metal using mixed media. She often shoots her metal pieces with 9 mm bullets before painting them. She had her first exhibition in January 2016 titled, A Picture and A Thousand Words which was a great success in raising funds for a charity organization in Abu Dhabi. Her second exhibition was in June 2016 where the majority of funds were donated to help refugees via UNHCR. She participated as a solo artist in World Art Dubai in April 2017. Noura is a mother of four. She currently lives and works in Abu Dhabi.
