“Exhibiting in a public space is very enriching and motivating. Art, physical space, and people come together to form a very special synergy. It makes me extremely happy to think that I can also convey to people the joy and enthusiasm that each canvas contains.”

The works of artist Houda Bakkali has filled the exhibition corridor of Spain’s Madrid Airport Terminal T2.

Women and Digital Art” is made up of 30 large-format canvases based on digital illustration, digital collage, and acrylic, as well as animated versions using augmented reality. The art exhibition runs from October 3rd, 2022 to November 3rd, 2022.

Women have always been an inspirational part of Houda Bakkali’s work. “The figure of the woman is inspired by my mother, in her serene and joyful vision of life. She represents the ideal of beauty, elegant, shrouded in mystery, but at the same time powerfully passionate and transgressive,” the artist says.

“It is an honour to be able to display thirty digital art canvases that pay tribute to women. I am extremely grateful to AENA, the world’s leading airport operator, for providing a prominent location for my artwork. Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport is a one-of-a-kind location for democratising art and bringing it closer to the public. It’s also an ideal setting for me to demonstrate my creative process using innovative and entertaining concepts like augmented reality. It is without a doubt the most exciting exhibition I have ever done.”

Arab women’s emancipation is a clear protagonist. The digital technique serves as the exhibition’s second pillar.

“Digital tools offer a lot of versatility. the composition and recreation possibilities are endless.”
