Salwa Al-Ansari’s profile on Sky Art’s online gallery

Salwa Ali Al-Ansari is an artist from KSA, as witnessed by Umm Al-Qura University, and a writer, as she claims, and a novelist, as she aspires.
She was born in Makkah Al-Mukarramah and fell in love with its details. Her path with art began from childhood, and her dreams and talent grew with her until she joined the university and graduated from the Department of Art Education from Umm Al-Qura University.
She moved between art schools in search of the style in which she finds herself. She found herself between Surrealism, Cubism and Impressionism. She fell in love with them and was influenced by Matisse and Van Gogh.
A relationship arose between her and the surrounding environment, so she loves the mountains, and she received a stone and started painting on it to leave the most beautiful trace.
She also likes the recesses “Rawashin”, as they are called in her country, or the “Shanasheel”, as they are called by the people of Mesopotamia in Iraq, and the engraved wooden windows “Mashrabiyat”, as they are called in Egypt. They became her focus as well as designing figures from pieces of wood.
She participated and organized many exhibitions inside and outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
She’s a member of Arab 22 & Sky Art 195.
