Listen to Amazed by Poe Finally my brother Mohammed’s long-awaited photos from Secretary opening night. I love that he shoots in black and white, and when he shoots in color it’s always so vibrant. I can’t thank him enough for always being so supportive. Big hug.
Listen to Woe Be Gone by Ani DiFranco, off the Sombreve playlist: Apart from having the coolest name ever, Jenny Casanova took some really lively photos at the opening of Secretary. She was the lady with the red-cased mini-iPad standing in the corners taking candid shots.Thank you, Jenny, for sharing these with me.
Listen to Aventine by Agnes Obel, off the Sombreve playlist: Last night has finally come and sadly gone. I had been anticipating it since May, and for the last six months I have been working obsessively, compulsively, tirelessly to reach Secretary status. It was torturous creating drawings I was excited about without posting on either Instagram or […]
This is it. It’s official and there’s no turning back. I know many of you can’t be here but never underestimate the power of good will. Wish me luck!
I’ve always liked Monira Al Qadiri. Not solely for her talent but because she is humble and obsessive and laughs when she talks about her work. I didn’t know what to expect when I visited the Sultan Gallery last night to see Monira’s Muhawwil. And I’m so glad I didn’t, because I think the impact […]
Last Thursday, in the nick of time, I managed to make it to Reza Doust‘s exhibition at the Sultan Gallery. According to his tally, I was the fourth Kuwaiti artist to visit that afternoon. Not bad for someone who has never been in the top ten of anything before. Back to the point, I had […]
It’s rare that I go to exhibitions here and really connect, or come out inspired. But last night I went to Jowhara Al Saud‘s show at the Sultan Gallery and immediately warmed up to her prints. Now, I’m not one to deface (or re-face in this instance) others’ works. I’m just trying to expand on […]
I have started the official countdown to my upcoming exhibition, PrettyGreenBullet|The Exhibition. Just typing this has aroused the dormant butterflies in my stomach. I’m not going to go into details of the exhibition because, although I have a general feel of what I want, I know my ideas and thoughts will shift, expand and possibly […]
I went to the highly anticipated (well, I was excited!) Teddy B exhibition last night at the Sultan Gallery. As expected, the gallery was swarming with Kuwait’s haves, have-nots, and would-probably-like-to-have-a-little-bit-mores. I’m not going to go into the noble little stories of Teddy, you can find those here. But I will talk about the exhibition […]
Yes, yes, they’re not in order here, but Thirteen was indeed painted after Four. I titled them after they were all complete and hanging in the gallery. I added two bows to the one above, right before the show. She’s wearing her skin on the outside rather than covering it up.
The finale of Laura Boushnak‘s little trilogy: the exhibition.
