Petra Kaltenbach is a multi-awarded fine artist, video artist, graphic designer and curator. 

She moved to Dubai in 2004, where she witnessed rapid  growth in the urban environ­ment around her. Later, in 2015, she dedicated herself full time to her art. With her background in graphic de­sign, she transitioned into painting and video art often intertwining her paintings with embedded technology such as QR codes. More recently, Petra has begun to make NFTs (non-fungible tokens) of her art.

In 2018, her video art was accepted to be shown on the fa­çade of the Burj Khalifa and she was awarded the title of best UAE-resident artist at World Art Dubai. Since 2019, Petra has been part of the curatorial team at World Art Dubai, one of the biggest art fairs in the Middle East.
