Zayed Temash

Conceptual Art

Zayed Temash (born 1988, Abu Dhabi, UAE) is a visual artist who received his Bachelor’s degree in business and a Master’s degree in communications from Zayed University. In his artistic practice he experiments with materials that are delicate, transparent or fragile, to explore themes of absence and loss, both in a physical and a metaphorical sense.

The artist began his art practice with illustrations in 2013 and made a comic book titled Do Not Go Up, which was a runner-up in ADMAF’s 2014 Comic Arts Award and was exhibited at the 2015 Middle East Film & Comic Con in Dubai. His second project was an art book based on his short journal writings about corporate life and which took visual inspiration from zines.

In 2018, he was selected as part of the Salama bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship, a one-year nomination-based art programme in partnership with Rhode Island School of Design.

He took part in the group exhibition ‘Community & Critique: SEAF 2017/18 Cohort 5’ at Warehouse421, Abu Dhabi, in 2018, where he exhibited Stays, a room installation with translucent furniture-shaped sculptures made out of packaging tape.

Zayed Temash is a recipient of the Cultural Foundation Art Residency 2019.
