Shouq Al Mana
b. 1996, Qatar

"Culture and poetry offer intangible experiences to individuals that one cannot precisely pinpoint, and in that sense, it becomes obvious that the possibilities in art are endless."

Shouq Al-Mana is a Qatari contemporary artist who received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar in 2017. She emphasizes themes that focus on culture, identity and tradition. Al-Mana’s practice involves painting, sculpture and installation art. Her interpretation of history through symbolism is imbued with a synthesis of the past and present.

Artist Statement


I am a Qatari visual artist interested in the presence of culture and poetry in contemporary society. I work in painting as well as an expanded practice of abstraction, installation art and sculpture. My work aims to be accessible for viewers, allowing them to create their own interpretation and relationship to the art, while stimulating conversations on the Qatari culture and its identity. My interest in transforming ordinary forms and abstracting them has challenged me to explore different art practices. As an artist, I am interested in connecting with everyday lifestyles, symbols and stories and, through abstraction, I hope to create a new and exciting vision for contemporary society.
