Tunis-based Dora Dalila Cheffi is a multimedia artist whose practice includes painting, sculpture, video, and rugmaking. In her recent paintings, she uses brightly colored acrylics and spray paints to depict sceneries informed by formative summers spent in Tunisia. Her work features settings that seem vaguely Mediterranean and simultaneously familiar in the Arab world; lavish color palettes and imperfect geometry form a visual identity that feels happily naïve.

Dora Dalila Cheffi was born in Helsinki in 1990 and lives and works in Tunis. She graduated with a BA from Aalto University of Art, School, and Design in 2018, with a minor in sculpting and painting. She also graduated from Pekka Halonen Academy in 2014 with a concentration in photography. Her works have been included in group exhibitions at institutions and fairs including Habitare (2018), Galerie Kajaste Helsinki (2018), Dipoli Gallery (2018), Kalleria Gallery (2018) and Cable Factory (2014). 

She has been part of the Helsinki Art Society since 2018.
