Reem Odeh

With a Bachelor degree in Visual arts, Painting and Drawing from the University of Jordan, artist Reem Odeh has been working in the art field of paint and ceramics for years. She is the co-founder of Kawn Art for Handmade Ceramics. Odeh finds that art is a mode of expressing one’s feelings, emotions and mental states  rather than replicating reality or nature. Her work is an expression of emotional influences, subjective feelings and spirituality. She steers away from detailing facial features in a bid to allow recipients to personally explore what the fabric hides in terms of unknown inner sentiments.

Yasmin Dasouki

Yasmin Dasouki

Yasmin Dasouki is a mixed media artist that combines collage with other media forms such as fabric, beads and relief paint. Her multi- layered work materializes the deeper you burrow into it and the more senses you use while admiring it. Her process involves endless hours of color exploration and experimentation, researching materials and combining them all together to create an amalgamation of creativity and beauty.

Yasmin studied General Design at the University of Jordan, mostly focusing on her painting techniques by taking art courses on the side. She has been teaching art for the past seven years in one of Jordan’s most well renowned schools. And through her years of teaching, she has been able to both guide the students on their artistic path and eventually finding hers.

Yasmin loves telling a story through her art pieces, and given the fact that they are not all titled, she would love for the audience to create his/her own story when admiring her pieces. Furthermore, through the use of National Geographic magazines and other magazines of the sorts, she is able to transform the audiences into the world she creates.

She always adds her final strokes with relief paint to cement the texture of her artwork and give it a more grounding feel, and she plans to further her artistic amalgamations with more mediums, photography and techniques in the future.


Lubna Juqqa

Lubna Juqqa

A cultural activist who has been managing and producing art and cultural events, festivals and projects since 2009, Juqqa comes from an artistic and literary background. She started inking in 2005 after experimenting with different mediums such as oil, acrylic and watercolors, in addition to collage art and illustrations. Her unique style borders on the surreal, as if one is subconsciously translating one’s stream of thoughts on to paper. At times whimsical and mischievous, at others dark and mysterious; Juqqa’s drawings leave the viewers intrigued, each with their own interpretation of her chaotically organized lines.

She says: “I have been feeding on art in all forms since I could firstly form a memory. I am a fish constantly collecting visual inspirations for my next lives. What I draw is merely visual flashes of what I’ve collected from my current and previous lives. Nothing is impossible, a human brain can visualize a lot more than we can possibly comprehend, and this is why I believe in art.”
