  • Almaha Jaralla in Conversation

    In this 30-minute interview Emirati artist, Almaha Jaralla, discusses the influence of the UAE’s architecture and the social habits of her ancestors on her paintings. For her latest show, the artist has worked with her aunt’s archival portraits snapped during the late 70s and 80s; images tinged with the red hue that Almaha now reveals to us through her canvases.


    In this intimate conversation, Almaha tells us why the preservation of regional histories is so important to her and shares her reflections on the leisure activities that characterised the generations before her.
