1979 born and lives in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
Ghada Al Rabea studied Home Economics and Fine Arts at Taiba University, Medina. She continues to teach these subjects in schools and organises various art workshops.
She has been an active member of the Medina art scene, exhibiting in numerous shows locally as well as exhibiting her work at Athr Gallery in Jeddah as part of their annual ‘Young Saudi Artists’ exhibition, and in the first edition of 21,39 Jeddah Arts in 2014.
A blogger once wrote “If many people think that the Abaya hinders Muslim women’s development and dreams, they should have a broader vision and a closer look at Muslim women in general, and at Saudi women in specific”. This sentence applies to no one better than to Ghada Al Rabea.
Her representations that capture the details of Saudi daily life show a love of her country and strength of spirit. Her technique of using candy wrappers instead of traditional paints gives her work a kitsch element that echoes the sweet innocence of the simple life, one that cannot help but resonate with the viewer.
