Born in Lebanon, in 1982, Magda Malkoun is currently living and working between Dubai and Beirut. Magda is a self-taught, multi-faceted artist who combines her interest in photography and sculpture in her artworks. Being exposed to varying cultures and art styles throughout her long journey away from home, she uses different types of material and texture not only as tools to paint with, but also to create forms. Magda’s body of work encompasses a series of figurative and abstract art inspired by the conflicts and the bonds one create with the places, events and faces encountered while in displacement. Her contemporary work is recognizable with her signature style organized  by photo collages to form various abstract portraits. Magda’s majority of work was acquired in the homes of art enthusiasts and collectors in Beirut, Dubai, Ajman, and France. Her work is alsoshown in Ajman Museum as part of their permanent collection. Malkoun won the Best Emerging artist award in Word Art Dubai 2021 amongst 250 exhibiting artists from across the globe. . Her work has been featured in several magazines like Elle Decoration, Gallery Magazine and Laha Magazine.
