Skin Art Design

by Mohd in Art, Community, Kuwait

Last week i got an invitation from Emad & Meshary the 2 talented kuwaiti designers i discovered and wrote about before ( check my previous posts Here & Here )   and as usual they never failed to amaze me with their designs. Too bad the booth was didnt show all their work coz mainly it was presented on a video and some sort of a slide show.

They showed me some of the projects they worked on and how they did overcome some challenging obstacles, i wont say how much i liked their work but ill leave you to decide for yourself click Here to check some of their previous art work & you may visit their official web site Here.

I took a tour through the exhibition and snapped some pics of various stuff that caught my eyes

The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt

by MiMi in Art, Competition, Travel

While we were getting around in London, we noticed many artistic eggs distributed all over many places.. at first we thought it’s just a preparation for Easter, then we realized the metal plate below each egg which explained everything..

The story is that there are 209 eggs hidden across 12 Egg Zones across central London.. and in the competition’s website they have the maps of those 12 zones where you can use them to hunt and find all the 209 eggs..

 The first, second and third eggs we found them in Covent Garden

 This one was in Selfridges

These are in St. James’s Park

 This one is in Carnaby Street

 And this was also in Covent Garden

Whoever enters the competition might win The Diamond Jubilee Egg valued at over £100,000 by simply texting the keyword when they find an egg!

So what do you think.. should we participate? 😉

Not Mawaheb

by Mohd in Art, Events

Last Thursday we got invited to attend Mawaheb’s exhibition in the Avenues. Just a quick recap if you dont know what im talking about, “Mawaheb” was created and organized by SACGC to provide a platform for more than 15 of the top Kuwaiti photographers, artists and musicians an opportunity to showcase their talent directly to the community through unique, signature performances, displays, and presentations.

There is nothing more awesome than meeting talented Kuwaitis who will help in building our lovely Kuwait. Usually i dont like attending events on the weekend coz  its the only time for me to relax, unbind & hangout with friends but this event was different i couldnt miss out meeting those Talents & maybe just help with this simple post to spread the word & motivate them. Before i start talking about them i would like emphasize it really delighted my heart meeting all of them & no word can describe how much those youngsters are talented so without further due lets start.

Albdulrahman Alostath a talented photographer who participated in many competitions & won some just look at his photos & surly it will amaze you.

Another photographer is Latifa AlMadwah who actually stunned me with her photos & most of them have not been touched by photoshop, pure & raw pics but amazing.

I’ll call him the Mask maker, a talented artisted & painter who took an unusual path in showing his artistic side. Painting on masks & bringing each one into life i would just say Awesooooooooooooome 🙂

Dont let her fool you with her smile & young age Luwla AlKattaf is a extra…(wait for it )…ordinary  photographer 🙂 (quoting someone :p ). Started only when she was 14 with a digital camera & after that walk her way to professional ones. She is only 18 now (AL3mor kelah inshallah) but her work is way beyond her age i predict a really bright future for her now you just see her showing her talent but soon her work will be international.

The guy is amazing playing music like a real pro & that really shows how the special needs can do more than normal ones.

Unfortunately i forgot his name but his work is unforgettable, engraving his art on wood WoW only a real artist have the courage to do such thing coz a simple wrong move can ruin everything but (Mashallah 3leh) he knows what he is doing & he is doing it right.

Of course Mubarak Ismaeel from HiKuwait i just have to take a pic for him in each post :p

This guy is simply amazing his comic work is out of this world really each time i meet a talented comic artist i remember the 99 comic which was a disappointment (click HERE to read my previous post about them) . This kind of talent should be enouraged & supported more to show the world what we can achieve in the entertainment & cartooning.

I can not categorize her work in one field i can only say she is a multi-talent designer. She paints, designs graphics & short animated clips. No matter how hard i can describe her work you would have to see it for your own eyes to see her awesomeness, the way she designs her work is beyond amazing i would have loved to show you her short animation clip or her paintings but she will need a separate post just to show her great work.

Basma AlSaeed the young talented princess in the event, she paints & makes small figures. She is blind but she makes eye candy for us to enjoy, her disability didnt stop her showing us that there is always light even in the darkest places. I have to say it & in capital AWWWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME 🙂

They are not just Mawaheb they are way beyond that & Mawaheb (Talents) is a really small name that doesn do them justice & this is why i titled my post that way coz i couldnt find a word to describe their great work you gotta visit them to believe it.

Finally Q8 Blend would like to wish all of those who participated in Mawaheb the best of luck & we hope that we see them achieve their dreams & ambition.

Special Thanks to BenSirri for the invitation & their organisation.

Art Attack

Art Attack

Last week i got invited to be the first to check the newest collection of the talented kuwaiti architects Emad & Meshary in Alraya & to be honest with all of u i didnt think they were gonna shock me  the way they did before. As i arrived in Alraya their art work caught my eyes from a distance, those guys have done it again shocking me with their more than wonderful & creative designs.

Now the letters in their art work r running wild out of the frame to create an amazing effect, u may check how thick the letters & the frame on the pic below, im trying to hold it with one hand so u may get a sense of the actual size im looking at in their gallery. Looking at their work i couldnt help feeling & imagining the letters coming a live & stretching freely out of the frame, absolutely breath taking u must go there and check it out ur selves to believe it.

Finally just wanna Thank Emad & Meshary for the chance to be the first to see their newest designs & best of luck to them. U can all visit them in Alraya Complex till the 14 th of Ramadan trust me u dont wanna miss their gallery 😉
