The Arab Gulf region is witnessing a new wave of art, called the non-fungible tokens (NFTs). A large number of artists in the gulf region, especially in the UAE and Saudi Arabia started to join digital art and among those who joined the world of digital assets was Ahaad Alamoudi. 

Who Is Ahaad Alamoudi? 

Alamoudi, a Saudi artist, was born in 1991 in Jeddah. Her life was between Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. She received a bachelor’s degree in visual communication from Dar Al-Hekma University in 2014 and a master’s degree in print from the Royal College of Art in London in 2017.

Her Artistic Career

Alamoudi inherited her love of art from her mother. Her artworks are mainly based on photography, video, and print. Through her artworks, Alamoudi tries to modernize the historic image of Saudi Arabia through her research on Saudi reforming ethnography. Her artworks were displayed at several exhibitions around the world. 

How Did Alamoudi Enter The NFT World? 

When the NFTs appeared, Alamoudi thought at the beginning that she won’t be a part of this industry. Later, she realized the importance of this field for the future of art and getting familiar with it. 

She saw that the NFTs put the artist in the first place. They make him the sole controller of his work and provide the element of transparency that art needs.

Her Participation in Bawa Exhibition

Alamoudi takes part in Bawa, a contemporary art gallery online for Khaleeji artists. At this gallery, she presents footages and images for herself as NFTs. 

Movement is the main element in these digital collectibles as an indication of the radical conditions and the transformation that the Gulf region and Saudi Arabia, in particular, have witnessed during the past few years. 

Alamoudi’s Most Significant NFTs 

As we mentioned, Alamoudi offers several of her artworks as NFTs. The most remarkable of which are a 10-second video titled “The Mirage” and another 18-second video called “Fly Right into the Future.” 

Alamoudi looks forward to offering more artworks as NFTs in the coming period to be a part of this promising industry.
