Budoor Al Riyami (Oman)

Budoor Al Riyami was born in 1977, and graduated from Sultan Qaboos University, Muscat, Oman. Riyami uses digital and technological media to critically agitate the viewers acceptance of what they apparently see. While the artist may present the viewer with visual clues she leaves the decisions of interpretation and reaction to the viewer's judgement.

In 2008 Riyami won the Grand Prize at the 13th Asian Art Biennale, with her innovative video installation work, The Peak of Burning, which was one of the few artworks on display, portraying modern technology in Oman. Riyami participated in The Circle Show in 2005, and 2007, an exhibition forum, that has taken the lead in encouraging new types of art in Oman, and the Gulf.
