Dina Saadi experienced a journey of colourful contrast between the east and the west; she was born in Moscow and raised in Syria, and in 2012 she moved to Dubai to work as an art director. In early 2015 she started her own design boutique and has been focused on her visual and street art work. Dina studied Visual Communications in Damascus University of Fine Arts and she has participated in many workshops, competitions and festivals across the Middle East, Europe and the US. She's won several awards and recognitions.
Her main area of focus is street art, digital painting and illustrations. She also has passion for Arabic calligraphy which can be seen in many of her artworks. Dina has launched her own 'vlog' to document and showcase the stages of her artistic journey. In this vlog, Dina will share her travels & paining adventures around the world. This will also be as an attempt to promote the artistic side of the Arabic and Middle Eastern culture, promote the beauty of Arabic calligraphy, and encourage other Arabic women to do street art.
Dina will collaborate with Zaki Razak to create Amusing Ourselves to Death, a permanent mural at DUCTAC. She will complete the work during the private vernissage evening.
