In Dy­nam­ics of Mo­tion (pic­tured), the artist re­flects on fad­ing cul­tural cus­toms in the face of con­sumerism through fab­ric col­lage. Al Banna has ripped apart tra­di­tional fab­rics worn by Emi­rati women and ar­ranged them in a cir­cu­lar piece that is tex­tured with beads, crys­tals and mir­rors.

This in­ter­est in form and space was in­flu­enced by Al Banna’s aca­demic back­ground in ar­chi­tec­tural en­gi­neer­ing. He de­vel­oped his artis­tic prac­tice with in­for­mal train­ing at the Emi­rates Fine Arts So­ci­ety and an etch­ing ap­pren­tice­ship with Yasir Al Duwaik. He has since given up etch­ing, opt­ing for draw­ing and paint­ing and now mov­ing to mixed me­dia pieces.
