woodcut 2008 (20x 39)Shifa is a fine artist working mainly with print. Her works are often studies of the visual landscape as she lends her critical view to fresh subjects and themes. Her ideas are keenly put to use with confidence in finding a new voice for the people and a voice for authority.

Her practice is based in Jordan and she follows some western codes of conduct by keeping in touch with global affairs through the use of media and culture in general. Her practice developed in 2008-09 when she made the series of prints that we are delighted to showcase and we are looking for similar work from other artists to progress while Shifa Jamal Spiker hits the ground running. The Art Tank Space will be representing her practice both online and in our journal shortly too. Stay positive, stay bright, stay for the future.
