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.
Beautiful work of art by:
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.
Those ones are also by the same artist. I love the colors, the famous old Arab characters and the calligraphy. Such paintings would definitely look good in a modern style living room.
You can check FA Gallery facebook page here for more information about their events and expos.
P2BK Expo to be continued…
I posted about the Palestinian Cultural Exhibition earlier hoping many of you who can make it to come. The exhibition was held by the Palestinian Cultural Center in Bayt Lothan in Salmiya. The Palestinian cultural center was founded here in Kuwait in 1965 to support the Palestinian women and to preserve the Palestinian heritage as a mean of maintaining the Palestinian cultural Identity. The various rooms of Bayt Lothan hosted many cultural and hand made artifacts starting from the famous Palestinian olives to embroidered traditional dresses. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take pictures of those artifacts. However, I will be sharing other interesting pictures with you.
