Mariam Fakhro

Currently working mostly with canvas and acrylic, she has in the past worked extensively with oil on canvas. She has curated over 25 art exhibitions during her role at the Ministry of Information at the Bahrain National Museum and Arts Center between 1991 and 2000.

She exhibits regularly in and outside Bahrain and has been part of many art exhibitions where women dominate the art scene. In her words, “I find women’s art fascinating because it shows their thoughts, journeys and experiences about life so closely. The experiences of women are also very similar all over the world and I derive strength from them.”
