The United Emirates-based artist Julia Ubbini draws inspiration from Islamic geometry and embroidery for her laser-cut paper designs. The complex patterns and layers of her colorful compositions are a metaphor for the artist’s multicultural background as a dual citizen of Jordan and the UK. Her works share elements of symbolism seen in the Middle Eastern region. Ibbini uses computer algorithms to create digital designs that she then cuts with a laser onto paper.
