Born and raised in Dubai,Fathima (Fats), currently lives and works from the UAE as an artist and curator. Combining a background in fine art with sociology, over the last 10 years her work has spanned large works on paper, intimate illustration, live art, and stop motion animation to more recent street art projects in London, New York, Jordan and Dubai. Her work taking from personal experiences resonates of hidden narratives and universal messages of humanity, ,magic and the human spirit told by mythological and hybrid creatures. Her signature styles of mark making and line work are both dark and chaotic yet fluid, organic and hopeful sometimes coupled with text. With a passion for community-engaging projects and outreach, Fats has been involved in several projects over the years that bring art to challenged communities. In 2010 she won the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award and in 2011 founded The Domino, a Dubai-based artist-led company that works to provide artist services with an emphasis on artist integrity and value. Fathima graduated with a Specialist's BA in Art & Culture from the University of Toronto and an MA in Communication, Culture & Society from Goldsmiths, University of London.
