About the Author

Although working from a background in interior design, Tamadher contributed in several art workshops, and she was a member of the Bahraini team in Venice Architectural Biennale (2010). In her MA thesis, Tamadher investigated the idea of creating a new image to Islamic art and design based on philosophical references and by going back to the profound principles of faith. Tamadher is currently working as a Teaching & Graduate Assistant in Interior Design Program in University of Bahrain. She has exhibited her work in Alriwaq Art Space between 2010 and 2012 and is working on establishing a local brand that would reflect the identity and culture in a modern—and perhaps sometimes ironic—context.
