October 2013- ARTSPACE Dubai presents Trees of Life, an exhibition of works by Hala Nadar Belselah, opening October 3rd, 2013. The opening reception will be inaugurated by H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.
Following the success of her first class honors graduation from Middlesex Polytechnic in 1991, where her degree show work was displayed at the university for the duration of a whole year, Hala Nadar Belselah started her painting journey in London. In her Princes Gate studio, she created the majority of the work that was to be exhibited in the early part of her career, including her first 1995 solo exhibition at Green Art Gallery, Dubai. During this London period, she also produced jacket illustrations for the publishing house Quartet Books, and her eye for creative detail was recognized and put to use in the art of merchandise presentation for two years at Harrods London.
In 1994, Hala Nadar Belselah’s permanent return to her home town Dubai saw her set up a studio where she continued producing works which were exhibited in several shows in the UAE, including the first Sharjah Biennial, as well as in New York City. She was also commissioned to create works for the Falcon Palace in Dubai. Furthermore, her design talent was effectively used at this same time for direct marketing projects, and her artistic knowledge lent an experienced hand in co-coordinating and sourcing artists for exhibition projects in collaboration with Green Art Gallery.
