Works by Alia Al Farsi

Born in the culturally rich town of Muttrah, Alia was imbued to become an avid explorer and culturist to an affinity for historic towns. She says that she is a non-believer in self-imposition of stylistic boundaries, she takes her inspiration from patterns and vernacular architecture.

Selling in renowned auctions such as Christie’s, Al Fanar, and Arabian Wings, her art is celebrated and appreciated in many parts of the world as her art collectors come from different parts of the world.

She held major solo exhibitions in cities like Paris, Tokyo, and Geneva. She was chosen to be the first Omani artist to exhibit officially at Venice Biennale 2017 and won the prestigious Dr Saud Al Sabah Creativity Award in 2010.
