EFFAT ABDULLAH FADAG

"The shovel represents a tool in the modernisation process. It is the act of change. It is displaying the present disturbance of authenticity in the Kingdom. Al-Kreik can act as a double edged sword – one side is to build, the other is to cover, hide or bury."

Born in Al-Khober, Effat spent her childhood between Aramco, Dahran and Al-Khobar. Due to her father’s work in the naval force she had the opportunity to interact with different societies and cultures, moving from Dahran to the USA, Riyadh and Jeddah. While completing her Bachelor Degree, Effat was part of the first Saudi woman pioneer artists in Jeddah and after completing her studies became a member of the Islamic art department faculty, which gave her the opportunity to pursue her studies in the UK. In 2006, Effat returned to Jeddah and acquired her Masters and PhD Degree, to become the first female Saudi Artists with a Doctorate of Philosophy in Fine Art in the Kingdom. Since 2007, she is chairman of the Islamic Art Department, and a full time assistant professor.
