was born in Libya in 1954. Influenced by her father, artist
Jamal Badran who played an important role in bringing her
to the world of art, she studied at the Cairo University
Fine Arts College, and at the Florence Fine Arts Academy
where she received a degree in etching and painting in 1982.
1980, Badran undertook a mural painting project at Belgium’s
Liége University. She has exhibited in a number of
Arabic and European countries, and at the Washington Museum
of Women in the Arts. Badran’s works are filled with
an “explosive anger characterized by a savage psychodrama
of paint”. She has recently experimented with works
based on photocopies and with painting on photographs.
