Born in 1982 in Hama, Syria, Lina Aljijakli lived in Damascus, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), then in Damascus until the end of 2009. A graduate in scenic design from the Higher Institute of Drama of Damascus, she designed sets and costumes, painted and did ceramics. Through a scholarship, Lina extended her studies in France until 2010. The Syrian Revolution along with threats against her family forced her to stay out of her country of origin. In 2017, she went back to painting after years of suspension. She exhibited in the display windows of the Ministry of Culture at the Royal Palace and at the Palais de la Porte Dorée during the 2018 Visions of Exile Festival. She is a member of the agency of artists in exile.
