Born in India to a prominent merchant family of Saudi-Kuwaiti origin, Al Kazi graduated from London’s Central School of Art and Design in 1961, where she mainly focused on different kinds of printmaking. Staying on in London throughout the 60s the artist began to achieve exposure through group and solo exhibitions in Europe and her native Middle East, including, most notably, the inaugural exhibition of Sultan Gallery in Kuwait in 1969.


Moving her studio to the island of Ibiza in the 70s, the artist continued with print making as well as developing her painting practice.


Al-Kazi’s paintings and prints have been collected by multiple international institutions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
