Ayman Zedani is a Saudi-born UAE-based conceptual artist and was the first winner of the Ithra Art Prize in 2018.
Experimentation with different media coupled with a fascination with scientific processes and the properties of unconventional materials are all features that characterize the work of Zedani. The nature of representation as it emerges through the manipulation of elements, objects, shapes and forms defines his experimental attitudes. Encompassing sculpture, photography, painting and digital techniques, his projects are informed by abstraction and the complexity of experiential phenomena, such as the reflection of light or the evaporation of water. His works celebrate the diversity of ideas that can be found through experimentation and they often depict novel layers within accepted traditions and narratives.
