This is my second post about P2BK. In the expo, the traditional factor was always present. Whether in the modern creative pieces of art and clothing, or in the music and dances. However, this booth was special because they encourage Kuwaiti youth to document their identity through art.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend this special music night at DAI, although I know it’s going to be my loss! I have attended two musical concerts for Maestro Valentina Maria Baginska and I loved them all. I also was lucky enough to attend their Polish traditional music night celebrating the national day of Poland. However I lost the pictures and the videos I took that day and I was unable to write about it! It was a really special night with lots of beautiful folklore music that sticks to your head.
You can watch and listen to that night’s music here. ( Enjoy it )
If you have and extra hour on Wednesday, I suggest you go there to enjoy the marvelous talent of that amazingly humble and talented lady and her son.

I went to the opening of the 5th P2BK exhibition and I`m glad that I did. I enjoyed almost every booth there and tried to update my head with so many creative things that are happening in Kuwait and the Gulf region. I will not make a whole post about it nor I will write about every single thing I saw there (impossible!) but I will share with you what I thought was unique, impressive and worth knowing about.
I started of course in FA Gallery booth as I can smell a painting from distance.
1- That’s How We Watch the World – Silk Screen on Craft Paper
2- Prison Wont Keep Me Silent – Silk Screen on Craft Paper
Talal al-Maiaan – Digital Print on Canvas
I love his work, especially that it has calligraphy.
A beautiful one with calligraphy and Islamic patterns. The color is so deep that it made me mesmerized. It’s like it has no end.

P2BK Expo to be continued…
Twenty-one falcons were created and designed by love. And twenty-one years separate us from the liberation day. Beautiful and innovative ideas were used to show the heritage of a country on the skin of a huge falcon. Companies, schools, institutions and artists worked creatively on those falcons, to show what Kuwait resembles for them. Each falcon has a name, and a story behind him. The 21 falcons were shown in public in 360 mall, and now they are designing the entrance of P2BK Exhibition. The falcons are going to be for sale and the money will benefit the participating institutions and other charity works. P2BK have also organized a photography contest based on those falcons.
P.S Thanks to my friend Froyonation for most of the pictures (the good ones of course) as my battery died that evening.
I’ll leave you to enjoy the beautiful work of art.
