new ‘painting’ } the centerfold I

The closest thing I’ve ever come to feeling in love without being in love is this. I’m excited, giddy, nervous and I’m laughing out loud because I’m happy. I wasn’t sure where I was going with this one but I think it’s finally worked and I’ll use it for my upcoming exhibition. Which means I […]

new painting } eve blue

I feel so scattered. My work is all over the place. I’m creating individual pieces that I like, but I feel stuck. I have no solid plans and no direction. But I sense that one day *something* will dawn on me and I’ll regain some focus. For now, I’ll keep on painting, drawing and posting.

Fairuz & Me|Fooling Around on March 11 AM

A few days ago I received a comment about the platform Fairuz is placed upon. I disagreed with what the person wrote even though initially I ultimately pictured her to be floating.

Fairuz & Me|March 6 AM

I’m at a bit of a low here with Fairuz. But I still know what I want to achieve and how to do it so I’m fine. It’s been such a struggle with her. To me, she is not like the painting of Um Kulthum, which was a literal translation from photo to painting. With […]

Fairuz & Me|February 21 Morning

Homes: Tareq Alkandari

This painting currently resides in Tareq’s office. I think it is my most travelled (within Kuwait and out) painting. It has yet to settle down in a permanent home. It is a little nomadic so I don’t see that happening in the near future. For now, it looks great where it is.

Family

This is a three panel painting I did in 2006. It was part of a collection of paintings I showed at Dar Al-Funoon Gallery that same year. I don’t remember the title or dimensions. I don’t even remember the title of that exhibition. Yes, I’m shit I know. This particular painting I love because it’s […]

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 […]
