Ghada Al Khater
b. 1989, Qatar

Ghada Al Khater is a Qatari multidisciplinary artist, the term that aptly captures her zealous approach to combining art, politics and social matters in cartoons, illustrations and sculptures. Her work tackles satirical socio/political commentaries on GCC matters and other relevant international affairs.

Her works are a creative outlet that aims to shed a light on the complex issues of the Middle East, as experienced by a Middle Easterner living in the heart of it. Tackling socio political sub-jects which have and still are being exploited as vehicles to drive and justify political actions, as well as current issues facing the middle east and the international community.

Some of her renowned works include “Jardin de Lumiere ” and “A blessing in Disguise” (public installation), that have gained recognition and appreciation.

Ghada has constantly found ways to push the boundaries of conventional art pedagogy into a new field of Artooning. That frees itself from the constraints of static perceptions of prevailing stereotypes. Through her works she hopes to inspire present and future generations to continue experimenting with the “subtle” and “subversive”, in all fields and issues connected to art.
