"My goal is to deep into the painting and understand the role of the Emirati woman and the impact she had on our society throughout the generations and still. The beauty of a digital exhibition is that it has no limits, similar to art. 'Al Mabrouka' can be seen from anywhere and anytime around the world.

"In cooperation with renowned Emirati composer Muhammad Al-Ahmad, the exhibition has an additional UAE flavour that will help art fanatics around the world understand and enjoy the digital exhibition," added Abdulla.
