About the Artist
Sana Jamlaney (b.1984, India) is a Dubai-based painter. She graduated with a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Wollongong in Dubai and then went on to Florence, Italy where she completed her Post Baccalaureate Certificate from Studio Art Centers International.
Her fascination with color and contrast can be viewed through her recent body of abstract paintings. Through her work, she discusses the hypocrisy of culture and tradition - their ability to stagnate growth, and the human will to push past it. Jamlaney works primarily on canvas and paper and she is constantly exploring new ways of sharing her journey through her work.
Sana was a finalist for the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award and her painting 'The Silent One II', one of four paintings, each depicting a segment of society of contemporary India, was featured as the cover art for 'Gendered Dimensions of Development' published by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development.
