eve plays tek too, 2011, acrylic and collage on canvas, 100cm x 100cm

*Tek Too is the Kuwaiti pronunciation of ‘take two’. I would never dream of pronouncing it otherwise. It’s a card game my family is very keen on playing. Everyone plays, all ages and as many people as willing to play. It can be quite competitive and has on one or two occasions nearly caused the downfall of the Kandari clan.

janjifa (playing cards in kuwaiti)

daiman oo kalafs (diamonds and spades)
