Featured Artist

Hello there, Myself Zaneena Nabeel. I’m an architect by profession and an artist by passion. I’m someone who believes art has an important role in the social development. Art is a stress relief mechanism and I would escape myself into art when I’m stressed as it gives me immense happiness. It helps me calm down and speak to my inner spirit. I started painting when I was about 3 or 4. At that age I never understood the value and depth of it, it just made me happy. Gradually, I gave up on painting and concentrated on my studies. I never realized the value of what I had left behind. Two years back, one fine day my husband gifted me a set of paint and brushes, it was like meeting a long lost friend. Just how one will end up in those long conversations; I forgot myself and started painting with that student grade set of paints for long continuous hours. Since then ART has become a part of ME, I cannot think of a day passing by without dreaming about what to paint next! And that’s how ‘AurorabyZ’ was born.

My art career started during the end of 2017 when I got an opportunity to exhibit my paintings at Dubai Design District. And then I had the courage to post my paintings on Instagram, changed my private account to a public art account. I started getting recognized as an artist, people approached me for commissioned art works and then I embraced myself as an artist.
A year and a half passed, with nearly 52,000 followers on Instagram, now I wanted to be recognized as an artist more than an architect. I conduct local/international art workshops, I teach online on Skillshare , I have a YouTube channel, I do brand collaborations, and I’m now experimenting all possible ways to develop as an artist.
