I Dream of Jerusalem


By View Artist Details

An architect by training, Dalia’s fascination with the buildings of Jerusalem is evident in this mixed media picture of the city. She picks out the features typical of Middle Eastern construction: the metal ironwork on the windows and doors, the domed roofs.

About the Artist: Dalia Ali

The work of Jordanian-Palestinian artist Dalia Ali is based on mixed media techniques and acrylic paints. Dalia’s special skill is in working with different surfaces such as newspapers or patterned paper to create a unique effect, layering the paint with a knife to allow the underlying colours to come through and create texture. Dalia succeeds in sacrificing detail to create a more abstract effect without losing detail or content.
