Artist in Residency | Noor Bahjat
January 2015

Ayyam Gallery is proud to announce that a residency program for young artists will be launched in Dubai with the first position being awarded to 23 year old Noor Bahjat. A recent graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts, Damascus, Noor left at the top of her class. Working from detailed sketches in a painterly, expressionist style and with a primarily figurative subject matter, the artist skilfully transitions between warm and cold palettes, creating deeply atmospheric canvases. The residency will last 6 months with Noor working in a purpose built studio within close proximity to established artists Tammam Azzam and Mohannad Orabi who will be mentoring her over the duration of her stay.
