Lamia Jamal, an Iraqi Kurd, graduated from Baghdad University followed by a MSc Degree in Human Nutrition from London University. She has traveled extensively through the Middle-East, Europe, and Africa. Presently, she lives in Jordan. Jamal is primarily a self-taught artist and her work has evolved over the years, taking her from oil painting to ceramics and finally to bronze casting. Her works have focused on human relationships.
Women was made in appreciation, respect, and love for Iraqi women who witnessed pain, destruction, and unnecessary sacrifice. The surface texture for the most part is smooth to show the unique wisdom and strength, yet the beauty and elegance of women all over the world. With optimism and confidence Jamal dedicates her bronze figures to all women, stating, "Let us share our wisdom with our daughters, sons and grandchildren in the cause for a more just and tolerant society and future."
Jamal had a solo exhibition at the French Cultural Center, Jordan and group exhibitions at the Royal Cultural Center and the Jordanian Artists Association Center.
