Nadine Kanso was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1968. She graduated from the Lebanese American University with degrees in Communication Arts and Advertising Design. In 2006, Nadine was invited to exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London as part of a group exhibition entitled “Arabize Me.” The artist’s photography and collage work has been exhibited in numerous fairs. She has dealt with themes of identity and nationalism, reflecting upon her native Lebanon and her adopted city of Dubai. In November 2010, the artist was commissioned by Louis Vuitton to create a series that celebrated Dubai’s relationship with the ocean and the sport of sailing. The exhibit was auctioned for charity by Bonhams. Alongside her photography, Nadine Kanso created “Bil Arabi,” a jewelry line inspired by the Arabic alphabet. “Bil Arabi” was showcased in Design Miami 2008.
