Staying Anonymous

by Abdul-Aziz in Photography

Today, just about everyone has a cellphone that functions as a camera. People are eager to photograph every moment and stay connected through images which can conveniently be shared through social networking platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Documenting and memorializing life has never been easier! While connecting with each other is simple, anonymity is scarce.

Photographer Poklong Anading plays with the idea of capturing life without exposing facial identity in his appropriately titled photo series Anonymity. Each image in the series presents a subject with a radiating white flash of light blocking out his/her face. It looks like a point-of-view shot, as though the subjects are photographing the photographer, but they are in fact holding up mirrors, reflecting blinding beams of light.

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.

Lilly “Superwoman” Throw Herself at Random Men!!

by Abdul-Aziz in Photography

Lilly “Superwoman” Throw Herself at Random Men!!

Normally, I wouldn’t watch women throwing themselves at men “specially in Kuwait”. However, photographer Lilly McElroy’s accurately titled series I Throw Myself At Men is really entertaining! The Arizona native literally flings her body at unknown men, capturing the moment of surprise, confusion, and awkward human contact.
