THE TEAM

Emily Gordon

Co-Founder

As iAM’s resident artist, Emily Gordon brings to iAM a wealth of knowledge and decades of UAE art world experience.


Emily is a pioneer of the Abu Dhabi art scene and some might say there only reason there is an art scene is because she built it to exhibit her work. Emily’s modern and colorful mixed media paintings consist of multiple layers of acrylic paint, interlaced with paraffin, resin, gold and silver leaf. This unique style of art evolved through years of extensive experimentation. Her paintings consist of trademark Arabic doors as well as minimalist, abstract designs.


Emily’s paintings can be found worldwide; decorating palaces, corporate boardrooms, hotels, yachts, homes and even a permanent installation on board an executive jet.
