Lives and Works: Abu Dhabi
Salwa Zeidan was born in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon and spent most of her formative years traveling around the World and eventually settled in Abu Dhabi, where she continued to pursue her love for the arts. Zeidan works with a variety of mediums including mixed media paintings, conceptual art, sculpting and recycled art. Most of her work revolves around the promotion of peace and freedom of expression, as part of her ongoing search for higher truth, inner peace, Light and knowledge. Throughout her career of more than 25 years, Salwa has dedicated several exhibitions to peace, love and environmental awareness.
A beacon for abstract minimalist art, Salwa has been known to incorporate notions of calligraphy into her art, in some instances creating sculptures inspired by one of her most notable spiral shapes ink drawings from the 1999. The spiral movement continues to be present in Salwa’s work, be it sculptures or paintings, through a movement, which she believes, mimics that of mankind constantly revolving in an internal pendulum of everlasting evolution.
Salwa’s paintings and sculptures are included in private collections around the world including the USA, Switzerland, Italy, Canada, France, London, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, Egypt and Lebanon.
She currently resides and works in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates where she established her signature contemporary art gallery where she curates exhibitions and shows on an ongoing basis to highlight the works of some of the most magnificent artists in the region as well as some of the most promising emerging artists in the Middle East.
