Walaa Fadul

Walaa Fadul is a graphic designer who describes herself as having the soul of an artist. She holds a first-class honor master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She describes herself as being influenced by the multiculturalism and openness of her home city of Jeddah, on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast. Her artistic practice often involves deep and fundamental understanding of the materials she works with, which help her to adapt the materials to the concept she is working with. 

This invites observers to question and explore new meaning, beliefs and understanding while she investigates the idea of points of connection between humans and materials. Fadul suggests that every material we engage with carries emotions, memories, history and meanings; just like people.

Gabriel de la Mora

Gabriel de la Mora, born in 1968 in Mexico City where he currently lives and works, is best known for constructing visual works from found, discarded and obsolete objects. In an obsessive process of collecting and fragmenting materials, whether eggshells, shoe soles, speaker screens or feathers, the Mexican artist creates seemingly minimal and often monochrome-looking surfaces that belie great technical complexity, conceptual rigor and embedded information. De la Mora has exhibited at the Drawing Center, New York, and the Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico.

His work is part of collections including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; El Museo del Barrio, New York; Colección Jumex, Mexico City; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Pérez Art Museum Miami.

Farhad Moshiri

Farhad Moshiri’s mixed media practice spans across painting, assemblage and sculpture. Inspired by pop art and conceptualism, he has developed a profoundly hybrid aesthetic at the crossroads between the Middle East and the West. While Moshiri usually draws his motifs from American consumer culture, he reinterprets them through equally distinctive traditional Persian craftsmanship.

Ranging from hand embroidery to calligraphy, his embrace of delicate ornamental techniques offers an ironic and powerful contrast with his otherwise lowbrow visual references. His signature use of sparkling materials – such as beads, glitter and diamonds – further creates a palpable tension between the primarily figurative quality of his works and their tendency towards pure embellishment.

Robert Irwin

Robert Irwin is a pioneering figure of the Los Angeles-based Light and Space movement of the 1960s. Beginning his career as a painter, Irwin later began exploring perception and light with his acrylic columns and discs. In 1969, he gave up his studio and began what he termed a conditional practice, working with the effects of light through subtle interventions in space and architecture.

Irwin employs a wide range of media — including fluorescent lights, fabric scrims, colored and tinted gels, paint, wire, acrylic, and glass — in the creation of site-conditioned works that respond to the context of their specific environments.
