Zaina Al Said
Zaina Al-Said was born and raised in Jordan. A self-taught artist, her work is influenced and inspired by the oeuvre of her uncle, the late Issam El-Said, a renowned Iraqi artist. Zaina’s artwork focuses on contemporary Islamic art and Iraqi women and culture. Her aim is to revive Issam El-Said’s notable style and to celebrate an artistic journey which ended too soon.
Zaina holds a B.A in Business Administration from the American Intercontinental University in London. She has spent several years travelling between Europe, the Middle East, the U.S, and Russia, and currently resides in Amman, Jordan, where she is establishing her artistic career. Her first exhibition, entitled "Homage to Issam El-Said" was held at the Orfali Gallery in Amman in April 2012.
