Fats

Based between Dubai and Toronto, Fats's heavy black line work derives from a number of creative practices from the two worlds including Inuit art and Arabic calligraphy resulting in a hybrid style reflecting her on cultural confusion and ambiguity. Her work with festivals, brands like Red Bull and Tiger beer take on illustration, stop motion, work on canvas and walls. With a master's in sociology and a general interest in social interaction, through abstract figures, fluid form, characters and narrative, she explores the individual experience, myth, totems, and the way we make sense of the world around us.  Passionate about community and public space, Fats's has worked on and curated a number of community art projects in Toronto, Dubai and India, and is a household name in helping activate the Dubai art scene in recent years.
