Dana Naser, a Canadian-Jordanian artist, will exhibit an abstract expressionistic art collection, which explores urban life and humanity in the city. Creating impressions with textures, visual form and colour through mixed media the three-week long exhibition titled ‘Urban Soul’, is set to premier at 7pm on November 21, 2017, at Studio Seven Gallery, Business Bay. The show will run until December 12, 2017.
Urban Soul is a reflection of people in the city. It is the experience of people living in the city and expressed through a series of paintings to showcase an emotional status or abstract cityscapes with a human element.
Urban Soul will showcase the metropolitan diversity where one finds different people, emotions and living concepts. The city is painted in abstract form – not showing any landmarks – but showing high-rise buildings as an indication.
Dana collects images, experiences and emotions; expressing them through her paintings, relying on intense colours and incorporating various forms, patterns and textures, using mixed media; such as pastels, ink, charcoal and many other mediums that she finds serves a purpose and which add value to her paintings.
Each canvas of Urban Soul tells a story of an experience. Dana’s inspiration comes from day-to-day experiences and emotions, turning them into physical expressions and visualisations with constantly changing colours and forms.
Regarding her very personal creative expression, Dana (seen) says: “Captivated by the colours I create, I strive to construct an entire world in my paintings; presenting unique works of art.”
Dana paints to ‘express’ and her art style is also contemporary, utilising different art methods. She is not afraid to try and mix bold colours because art to her is an adventure.
Based in Dubai, Dana is also a designer and photographer. Growing up, art was an important part of Dana’s life. Throughout her life, she collected images, experiences and emotions, expressing them through her art, relying on intense colours and incorporating various forms, patterns and textures, channeling this talent through her graphic design as well as her painting. For Dana, art is creation, transformation and a medium of expression.
Dana’s work concentrates on creating abstract surfaces through her favourite medium; acrylics, but she also works in oil and has experimented with a variety of mixed media, such as pastels, ink, wire, fabric, silk screen and many others.
