Ola Dajani is a textile artist and embroiderer with a practice that stems from her fascination with representation of emotions and fantasies. Ola’s work possesses unique visual language and a strong presence of figurative forms conveyed in fibre and textile, amongst other media. She creates worlds for her subjects that are at times playful and lyrical and at times heavy and silent. Ola’s imaginative vision is supported by her technical draughtsmanship and craft skill. She uses a range of media, always being led by her curiosity and love for experimentation, delivering darkly creative narratives of harmony and disharmony.
Ola's work has exhibited in the United Arab Emirates and the GCC, including Art Dubai, Abu Dhabi Art, Saudi Design Week, 1971 Design Space, SIKKA Art Fair, Jameel Art Centre, Katara Art Centre and the Third Line.
Ola Dajani is a self-taught artist. Born in 1979, she obtained her Masters in Law from McGill University, Canada, She currently lives and works in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
