Ria Sharma is a Dubai based artist. She was born in India in 1975. Being a Civil Engineer she has fulfilled a successful professional career in construction for 16 years.

She started practicing Art in Dubai in year 2009. With a desire to bring out goodness to society through art, she involved herself into projects that focused on social issues such as breast cancer awareness, women empowerment, refugee crises, Autism awareness & collaborating with special needs institutes such as Senses through non profit organizations

Ria is self-taught versatile artist but her true passion has been play of Cubism in her monochrome subjects. Her dynamic subjects are in rhythm with controlled cubist lines and powerful spirits that seek to burst from the constraints of the cubist shapes. Her work and style Cubism is covered by all leading newspapers of Dubai and TV. She has also been featured in International Art Magazines like "Emboss". Her work has won  Clyde & Co MENA awards 2019. With five very successful Solo Shows & and dozens of  international exhibitions, her work is owned by art lovers around the world.

Selected Projects

Cubism: Being a Civil Engineering, generating artistic geometrical forms comes much natural to me. In my Cubist artwork, objects are analyzed, broken up and reassembled in an abstracted form—instead of depicting objects from a single viewpoint, the subject from a multitude of viewpoints to represent the subject in a greater context.

Cubism for me is the representation of different views of the subject pictured at the same time, also called multiple perspective, multiplicity, while Constructivism is influenced by common threads between the movements and simplification of geometric forms.

"The Denim Project" that challenged her storytelling abilities through illustrations in her cubic forms. It is to support Kenya based sex exploited women initiated through a series of fund-raising sustainable initiatives by UAE based The Ajala Project lead  in collaboration with Play for Smiles. She says that through this project she has achieved a higher potential
