Hamida Madhani is a US based contemporary artist, independent creative director and a designer. Driven by the search to experientially understand our subjective experience of beauty and its relationship to forms and objects, Hamida’s art explores the glorious rays of our being by creating art as a pathway to inner realities and spiritual dimensions of our existence. Utilizing her multicultural heritage and educational background in Computer Science, Design and Industrial Management, her artistic creations are a beautiful synthesis between digital and traditional art forms as well as eastern and western forms.

She works in a variety of styles and themes but her focus has been on lyrical abstract and modern Arabic calligraphy art. Numerous works of her art has been commissioned by collectors internationally and has been exhibited across US, Canada, London, Germany, Abu Dhabi and China. She has also been active in community service. For the past several years she has been donating her art pieces to the Aga Khan Foundation a non-profit International Development Organisation to help raise funds for global development programs in health, education and rural development.

Artist Statement: For me, art is the mirror of a culture and its worldview. It is not restricted to a particular medium or tools used to create it. It is about the vision, message, or emotion of the artist. The focus of my art is to create magnificent and powerful images that express my soul while embodying the essence of my subject and to celebrate the beauty and richness of my cultural heritage. My art somehow seems to reflect my emotions and is inspired by something deep within me and from my experiences; from the impact of modern European art masters to the celestial and terrestrial forms around me to cultures of the exotic lands I have visited.
