Born and raised in Russia, Maryam Golubeva uses traditional Russian paper-cutting and engraving techniques to deliver a cross cultural narrative that aims to re-establish the deep seated historic bonds between the East and West. She is currently involved in “Apna” community project aimed to celebrate Islamic cultural heritage. Maryam created 9 ft. by 5 ft. single sheet paper cut installations for the exhibition space as well as delivering a series of workshops for the local community groups.

Her art was recently show-cased at the MOCAfest at the World Islamic Economic Forum in Dubai and Malaysia. In 2015 and 2016 she was also shortlisted for Muslim News Alhambra Award for Excellence in Arts. In 2019, Maryam debuted her new collection of work at a solo exhibition in Riga, Latvia.
