Untitled, Face Series by Shua'a Ali

Untitled, Face Series -  UNFRAMED
Acrylic on Paper

40 x 30 cm

Shua'a Ali/ Qatar

Living in various different cities for 2 decades has shaped my worldview and influenced my artistic style greatly. My local culture has a profound inspiration on my works, and I try to portray aspects of it in many of my works. In my painting series, I demonstrate transparency and layering and portray cultural features that inspire me in a contemporary manner. The prominent overlapping of different layers and strokes of paint in my recent work accentuates the concept of the little fragments and experiences in my life, and how they build a bigger picture of one's identity, and they present glimpses of life and personal matters. The composition of works is developed in a spontaneous and fluid manner.

As this artwork is currently located overseas kindly allow for 1-2 week delivery (depending on country of origin).

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices. 

Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.

At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
