Huda Totonji is an established Arab female artist. She obtained her BA in Studio Art and MFA in Art and Visual Technology from the US with academic excellence. She is a master calligrapher certified in teaching Arabic Calligraphy (Ijazat Alkhat Alarabi). As a great enhancement for future leadership in academia, her interest in scholarly research guided the completion of her degree in Fine Art and Visual Technology.
Having been born and raised in Saudi Arabia, the Eastern thought is where she came from. Living her adulthood in the United States allowed the Western thought to shape her identity in the West. Huda comes from two civilizations, one that expresses itself visually through the ‘word’ and the other that expresses itself through ‘pictorial’ and figurative (representation) language. Being able to combine both the Eastern and Western ideology has been a constant interest in Huda’s artistic approach. This furthermore exposed her to Eastern and Western educational systems.
Teaching as a fulltime lecturer at Dar Al Hekma College, Jeddah, KSA, further enriched her knowledge and exposure to academic improvement and excellence. She joined the faculty of the Graphic Design Department at the Art Institute of Washington. She also worked at Georgetown University. Her academic and professional experience from the Middle East and the West has also contributed to her ability to communicate with different age groups, cultures, and nationalities. Professionally, Huda, the artist, researcher, and lecturer has gained extensive recognition in various exhibitions as well as universities in the United States and internationally, which has been louvered in various forms of the media.
Being a visiting speaker in many of the most renowned universities in Washington Metropolitan area and others such as, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University, Montgomery College, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Kansas State University, Penn State University, University of Pennsylvania, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, Texas A&M University, and in Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. This enhanced her academic professional acknowledgments. Her bilingual, critical thinking, visual perception, and analytical reasoning skills is projected in applying theory into practice in the field of Fine Art in higher education.
Huda Totonji’s artwork has moved formally from painting towards video, performance and text in response to investigating issues and questions about femininity and representation. Working with the female gaze, her MFA thesis show from George Mason University presented these challenges through the use of Performance Art, Video Installation, Multi-Media, Drawing, Painting, and Photography. Her dissertation explored the integration of text and image researching Islamic Calligraphy, Female Subjectivity, and Art and Science. Her future career goal is to establish robust educational channels between international universities and other universities in Saudi Arabia, leading the Saudi female educators and artists into an outstanding productive and creative educational environment.
