Hadil Moufti

Biography

Hadil Moufti is a Saudi artist born in Jeddah. She graduated from Parsons School of Design in Paris in 1992 and has lived in Africa, India, and England, to finally settle down in the United Arab Emirates last year with her husband and two children. Her studio is based in the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood of Dubai and her works are part of private collections around the world.

Having lived in many different countries, Moufti does not feel the belonging to one in particular and therefore recreates through her art a world of her own, between dreams and reality. Moufti defines her creative process as experimental, mixing materials, textures, objects, and applying them to large scale canvases with her hands.

Her work conveys neither political nor social messages. It exists to create intrigue and invite the viewer to a colourful world, where animals journey through fictional landscapes.
