Sumayyah Al Suwaidi is a multiple award-winning Emirati artist based in Abu Dhabi. Her passion for digital art started in 1996 and, in 2001, she launched her first collection inspired by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. She begins each piece with a sketch, or a simple photograph, combining textures, colours, and contrasts that make her creations unique and invaluable. Her first exhibition was in 2003 in Abu Dhabi, showcasing her work alongside many of the UAE’s pioneer artists. Shortly after, she began to exhibit her work in various galleries all over the UAE, and abroad in London, USA, China, France, Germany, Switzerland, Morocco and Kuwait. Her work was auctioned by Christie’s in 2012 as part of the Modern and Contemporary Arab, Iranian and Turkish Art Part II sale and exhibited at Sotheby’s Galleries in London as part of the Three Generations exhibition in 2013.
