Born 1987 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Dana Awartani graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, London and a Master's in Traditional Arts at the Princes School, London. Specialising in geometry as well as illumination, tile-work and parquetry, Awartani's work explores the relationship between geometry and nature, as well as how truths can be translated through art using geometric principles, visualising a sacred language through a symbolic and multi-layered aesthetic.
Awartani is keen to revive historical techniques which struggle to survive in the modern world. In order to further an appreciation of traditional arts, she has worked on several national outreach projects in schools and communities in both the UK and Saudi Arabia. Several pieces of her work feature in the Farjam Collection, one of the world's largest collections of Islamic art.
