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!
muhawwil (transformer) by monira al qadiri
Posted on January 27, 2014 Leave a Comment
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 […]
Reza Doust|Get Tested|The Sultan Gallery

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 […]
Your Friends and Neighbors|Jowhara Al Saud
Posted on October 20, 2010 2 Comments
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 […]
Teddy B’s Exhibition
Posted on October 6, 2010 3 Comments
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 […]

From The Yellow Tape Portraits. Four, Thirteen, Six

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.
