As Edward T. Hall said, “The relationship between man and the cultural dimension is one in which both man and his environment participate in
molding each other”. Hashel Al Lamki was born in the UAE, where he has experienced not only the rapid industrial and architectural growth of
Dubai and the rest of the Emirates, but also the cultural complexities and dynamics that came as a result of the construction boom.
In 2007 Al Lamki joined a BFA program at Parsons the New School for Design In New York City. During the artists time in New York City, he nurtured
his passions and enriched his practice through multidisciplinary collaborations. Currently, he infuses these vibrant perspectives to bring them into
his practice, which focuses on social innovation, sustainability, environmental & philanthropic practices. Al Lamki’s most recent exhibition is his first
solo show, The Cup and The Saucer, at Warehouse 421.
