Reblogged from prettygreenbullet: The worst thing I could have done to myself after a long week, day and night of exhibition preparation and time was looking at these photos in bed. Whatever exhaustion I felt flew right out of my laughing mouth as I LOLed myself to a state of wakefulness and excitement to get […]
Visit the Dar Al-Funoon gallery for its second Affordable Art Exhibition. On display will be works by some pretty hefty artists, nothing over KD400, so a great chance to acquire a decent work of art. The gallery address is Al-Watiah, Behbehani Compound, House 28 telephone: 2243-3138
Don’t miss Dar Al-Funoon’s Affordable Art Exhibition tonight! My postcards will be for sale among some amazing work by well-known artists. Everything under KD 300! And just tonight from 4-9 pm.
For every one of my exhibitions in the past five years, my brother Mohammed Alkandari has been there for me, snapping away. I always value his ‘eye’ and his point of view, and his photos never cease to surprise me. There was absolutely no editing done on these photos taken with his new Leica (which […]

Cross the bridge for details!
One of our trips this morning took us to Dar Al-Funoon gallery in Sharq. We were hoping to get a glimpse of tomorrow night’s show by Kuwaiti photographer Bader Albassam. And we did. I really enjoyed gazing at his prints, done with standard film and natural lighting. Taken on his trips to countries such as […]
I went to the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery this morning with a preconceived idea. A friend of mine wasn’t very impressed with this exhibition and I jumped at the opportunity to voice my opinion about the unfairness of the art world and how, in little Kuwait, we seem to be overlooked by the international art community […]
In October Dar Al Funoon will be hosting its second Bayt Abdullah exhibition to generate funds for the children’s hospice, commissioned by KACCH to provide specialized care for children who are not expected to reach adulthood. Works will be sold at a token price so don’t miss it! I’ll post the details and a map […]
I am proud to say that Fairuz is now hanging at the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery as part of its annual summer exhibit. The gallery, situated in the Behbehani Villas in Sharq (see map), is open twice a day every day except for Friday and Saturday. Times: 10am-1pm/4pm-7pm Thanks to photographer Khaled Al-Saleh for the photos.
Last Ramadan, Yasmine and I visited Dar Al-Funoon at the last minute to check out the Noon Collection. Unfortunately, the skirt that Yasmine had seen in the catalog and loved had been sold. But when life gives you lemons, you make lemon merangue pie, or in our case, try on some other lovely outfits and […]
This collection started with a painting I had done much earlier and stored away. It amazed me how much my style evolved the more paintings I did in this series. When I went back to the one that inspired the rest, I was shocked at how different it looked from its sisters. Nonetheless, I included […]
Well, this is it. I am very happy with it. I decided to keep Jana the way she is, unfinished, incomplete. The painting will be part of an exhibition/auction benefiting the Animal Friends League of Kuwait/K’s Path. Works will be displayed at the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery for two days, and the auction will take place […]
