Hussain Almoosawi is an Emirati multidisciplinary creative with 15 years of experience in the realms of design, photography and visual journalism. After obtaining a BA from Queensland College of Art in 2007, Almoosawi embarked on a design career working for The Letter D. and the Museum of Brisbane. He then completed an MA in Communication Design at Swinburne University in Melbourne, where he documented some of the city’s urban typologies. After returning home to the UAE in 2013, he served as an infographic artist and content creator for The National and other media platforms at Abu Dhabi Media for several years. He currently serves as the acting Editor In Chief of National Geographic Arabic. In tandem, Almoosawi has been on a quest to rediscover the UAE’s urban landscapes by systematically documenting its overlooked modern architecture. His work has been exhibited in the Sharjah Art Museum, Abu Dhabi Art, the Sharjah Architecture Triennial, Gulf Photo Plus Dubai and Gallery Bawa.
In his gallery in the sky, Almoosawi, who is infatuated with modern architecture, tells us about three of the UAE’s most intriguing buildings –The Dubai World Trade Centre, AlOmaira Building and Liwa Tower – which he captured through his camera lens. The gallery is available for passengers onboard Emirates Airlines to view on its inflight entertainment, Ice, and Etihad Airways on its inflight entertainment, E-Box.
The Khaleeji Art Museum partnered up with Art and Object, a fine art news website based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, which provided media coverage of the Museum in the Sky’s first series. To read Hussain Almoosawi’s interview with them, please click here.
