Who is Alia
Omani painter, Alia Al Farsi is an ardent lover of French poetry, especially metaphors that are harmonious to the ears. Her talent using mixed media, acrylic, Cambodian letters and even recycled paper during the early stages of her career and expressing her spirituality through paintings make her an artist with strong concepts and ideas.
Going against the contemporary definition of beauty, she prefers to create loveliness out of what is discarded and rejected. Nobody is perfect; flaws tend to make one unique – is a philosophy Alia applies to her works of art. Concentrating on the abstract, she looks to her Omani heritage to produce unity through diversity upon her canvas. Be it through the usage of various fabrics or specific numerals and letters, the artist in Alia seeks to establish a direct connection with her audience. Not relying on a specific medium of expression, Alia writes poetry that later transcends into mixed media on canvas.

Not relying on a specific medium of expression, Alia writes poetry which later transcends into mixed media on canvas. Having come a long way from being a simple high-school girl interested in playing with colours and forms, to becoming an innovator of new-age Omani art, Alia Alfarsi intends to continue in her path of creating the extraordinary out of the ordinary.
As one of Oman’s most prolific artists, Alia continues to push the boundaries of art rooted in her love for all things Omani. She has exhibited internationally with solo shows in Tokyo, Paris, and Brussels. Having established her credibility as a serious artist with a clear message, she has also exhibited with similar minded artists in Stockholm, Berlin, Shanghai, Abu Dhabi, and Geneva amongst many exhibitions over the past 20 years.
Her works are exhibited in museums including the Arab World Institute in Paris and in prestigious hotels in the region. Her recent foray into furniture and object painting allows her to showcase and express her talent beyond two-dimensional settings of the canvas.
