International Women's Day Focus: Helen Zughaib

Dima Abdul Kader

Look Who Is Coming For Dinner / Archival Pigment Print / 50x70cm / $1800

What female artist/s has inspired you?

Frida Kahlo of course!!! Faith Ringgold, Laila Essaydi.

What does it mean to be a strong woman?

For me, it comes down to self-confidence. Not being arrogant or judgmental.  Not compromising what I think is right and fair, to please someone else. Having your own moral compass to measure your actions against and not someone else’s. 

Describe the modern Middle Eastern woman…Two words! Strength and beauty!

Changing Percepion II / Gouache on Board / 20x16cm / $850

How do you wish to inspire the next generation of female artists?

I think that they should know that their voice is important. Their stories are important. To have the freedom to express themselves with the rest of the world who wants to listen.

Abaya Driving / Archival Pigment Print / 50x76cm /$2000

If you had one super power, what would it be? I think if I had one super power, I would insure a peaceful, safe world for all living creatures. We then would have no reason for war.
