Najeebah Al-Ghadban, born in Kuwait and currently residing in New York City, is a designer passionate about all things book-related, an image-maker caught between scissors and paper, and a writer often found reconciling with the absurdity of existence. She received her MFA and BFA in Design from the School of Visual Arts and is currently pursuing her career and personal projects.
Her creative curiosity is driven by the desire to communicate, whether through text, image, or design, the intangible.
As a collage artist, Najeebah’s first foray into the medium began with A White Asylum, an ongoing series that is an exploration of the human psyche. Each collage paints a portrait, assembling the discordance of heart and the entrapment of mind, through the use of industrial tools, abstraction of image, and shadow-play. A White Asylum was recently featured in a solo show for CAP Kuwait with a 50-piece installation for a two-week period in October 2014.
She is currently expanding her experimentation with the medium with abstraction of paper, the incorporation of ink (Songes), and a slow progression towards a wistful introduction of color.
