Rawan AlMahrouqi is an aspiring multidisciplinary artist from Oman, who’s work focuses on the female experience in the Arabian Gulf, double standards, the thin line between tradition and religion and an overall social commentary. Her works tend to be neutral, asking questions without giving an opinion and often stating facts as they are to start a conversation, most of her inspiration is drawn from her Khaleeji (Arabian Gulf) culture and the experiences she has had growing up and living in it. Rawan works with various media such as photography, illustration, painting and light.

Rawan AlMahrouqi is part of the artist circle around the STAL Gallery in Oman’s capital Muscat, which supports young emerging artists from Oman and offers them opportunities for exhibitions, artistic education and exchange. Rawan curated own exhibition projects at STAL gallery as well. Other exhibition locations were Tunis (Tunisia), London (England) or Sharjah (UAE). She is also the founder of Makan Studios, the first local art school to provide a community for the arts in Muscat
