Shalimar Sharbatly is a Saudi artist who has earned international spotlight with her distinguished art, and has held several exhibitions across arts capitals in the world. She became the first Saudi woman and artist commissioned by the government to draw paintings and designs that would be spread across main streets in Jeddah. The assignment catapulted her into one of the most important 100 personalities to have had an impact on the arts and culture scene in coastal Jeddah.
Sharbatly found her voice and unique artistic print in a conceptual approach she dubbed Moving Art. Moving Art is an expression of fine arts on moving objects and vehicles, particularly on cars and motorcycles; it soon made it to international specialized exhibition that, today, look at Moving Art as an independent form of artistry.
In 2017, she was chosen among 450 artists from all over the world to display their paintings and works of art at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. In the same year, she was chosen as a Goodwill Ambassador for her contributions to humanitarian issues and civil society.
The exhibition at Aisha Alabbar Art Gallery will also include a collection of some of the world’s finest natural leather, from Foglizzo, an Italian brand that designs leather pieces for private planes and Formula One cars.
