About amena bandukwala

I am an emerging Pakistani artist, born and brought up in Dubai, U.A.E. Having lived across three continents and multiple cities, I translate my thoughts and my human experiences into the black white and grey.

Due to years of conditioning our minds are trained to be confined within certain boundaries. The idea of applying limits on the identity pull in the controlled yet chaotic strokes within definite forms in my creative process.

It is about our inner contradictions. The desire to connect, the need to be heard and be understood. To communicate with the world from within our being, simultaneously wanting to become the one of many.
