The Award was granted to Nadine for the
simplicity of her artistic language and vocabulary,
in harmony with the mood of contemporary arts,
and her ability to compose narratives and
transform them into a graphic language inspired
by comics, urban plans, and street arts. As well as
her use of various modern techniques that are
important keys to what graphic arts seek today in
their functional and interactive terms.

and a bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island
School of Design where she also minored other
technical courses. She is now working between
Cambridge, MA and Amman as a design educator

“Nadine is a proponent of using architecture as a
tool to use in major social and cultural issues of
our time, centering the conversations around the
Middle East and Arab and Muslims lives in
America.. Nadine’s artistic vision is that of radical
representation from the urban and architectural
scale of cities to the individuals whose lives are
woven in and out of the urban fabric”.
The jury members would like to extend their
gratitude and appreciation to all the artists who
took part in this year’s competition, and

It is an honour to share in these defining
moments of achievement for our nation’s
promising artists and to elevate their artistic
talent on the local and regional levels. It is also a
privilege to support them on their journey to
becoming successful artists.
