Eman Alami

Eman Alami, BFA, UCLA, (art history); MFA, California College of the Arts (poetry), is a Los Angeles-based creative, where she explores the intersection between creative writing, philosophy, and visual art. Her work focuses on the role surrealism plays in guiding creativity in the 21st century. To her surrealism, is a striking tradition that empowers women in expressing grief, trauma, emotions, time, and memory. She is influenced by Arthur Rimbaud, Salvador Dali, Daniel Rosenberry, Leonora Carrington, Alice Rahon and African surrealist poets.

She has interest in translation of French surrealist poetry to strengthen her knowledge on diverse perspectives and imagination from the 1930s to the 1940s. To translate Amy Nimr, Tristan Tzara, and Ikbal El Alaily are her latest passions.
