The acclaimed young Emirati/Norwegian artist, Amalie Beljafla’s exhibition at the Abu Dhabi Art Fair in November 2016 was received by rapturous applause. It was her fourth exhibition, featuring 13 large-scale pieces of mixed media abstract works of art.
This milestone in Amalie’s career is inspired by her book, “For You”, a soul-searching quest by the artist herself to look beyond the face value of every day life. She said: “I am constantly inspired to delve deeper and research the human psyche. Self growth and positive ways of being are a theme close to my heart.” 30 percent of the proceeds made from the paintings exhibited at Hunar Art Gallery went towards the Ameera Fund, in memory of the late Ameera Bin Karam; the charity supports cancer patient’s worldwide.
