ARTIST INFO

About

Zayn Qahtani is a multidisciplinary working between London and Bahrain. Qahtani’s body of work is a diligent effort at archiving a personal archaeological practice - works feel discovered rather than created, alluding to a life beyond the maker. This becomes apparent in Zayn’s use of materiality: papers crafted from date palm trees in Bahrain, bioplastics that come from sugarcane, and pigments borne from plants, crystals, metals and earth all intermingle to form objects and images that seem to be animated with a life of their own.

Zayn is currently on the MA Sculpture programme at The Royal College of Art, London, UK (2024). She has completed The Drawing Intensive at The Royal Drawing School, London, UK (2022), and holds a BA in Fashion Design from The Royal University for Women, BH (2019).
