Seema Baqi

In the artist’s words, “…a message of peace, courage and co-existence is what I want to share through the eyes of a Bahraini artist in abstract form.”

Seema’s artistic expedition aims to express the local traditions in today’s contemporary world. She strives to paint a scene of modernity in attitudes and practices whilst at the same time adhering to culture and tradition. Seema’s abstract pieces tell the story of Sufi culture- its ideology of selflessness, simplicity and the journey to self- actualization. She believes that much like authentic Bahraini culture, Sufism also has its roots in the practice of loyalty, love and truthfulness. It is this form of tradition and emotional beauty that she translates onto canvas.

Having spent most of her career in the corporate world, she is now dedicated to her passion. She has collaborated with several artists and contributed to many charities. Her main aim being
to showcase local Bahraini art by bringing together designers and artists of all cultures to create beautiful art while at the same time spreading a message of peaceful co-existence.
