Om Kalthoom Majed Al-Alawi is an artist born in Al-Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Having acquired a Bachelor degree in Microbiology in 2007 at Al-Dammam University, she decided to follow it up with a Diploma in Visual Arts, achieving it just two years later, at the Arts and Skills Institute in Riyadh.
Since then Al-Alawi has gone on to win an array of awards as well as having work exhibited in her native Saudi Arabia. The mediums utilised in her work vary drastically, but most notably she uses acrylic paint and mixed media for her two dimensional pieces and paper for her sculptures.
Al-Alawi inspiration is found in simple human form but more in what the form and its movement symbolizes. Her two dimensional work shows an adoration and celebration of human fancy and instantly demands numerous repeat viewings.
