about dana barqawi_

For Dana, the act of artistic creation is inseparable from notions of the real world. In times where socio-political changes compose an inherent part of our reality, she chooses to reflect the context within her work and consequently creates politically and socially engaged art. the centre of her work inspires cultural and socio-political affirmation and delivers a sense of openness that allows to incorporate the viewer as an active participant.

As a process driven artist, Dana uses raw concepts to define the rules of each project. Working from a small studio in Amman, her work involves experimenting with material and is constantly evolving. she works with ink, coffee, thread, newspaper, plants, paint, gold leaf and collage to handcraft her pieces of work.

Growing up surrounded by women who painted, sewed, designed and made art, Dana extends herself through artistry and has a long-standing fascination with detail.

Dana lives in Amman, Jordan
