Arab City at the Beirut exhibition center

September 25, 2010

Yesterday, I visited the Beirut exhibtion center for the first time. An exhibtion called: Arab City is taking place from September 22 till October 31 with works from nine contemporary artists from the Arab world.

If it happens you are in Beirut, you should definitely take a look I am posting some of the pictures I took. I loved Hassan Hajjaj’s work, the colors are so bright and the pictures are so nice.

I also loved Chant Avedissian’s work, and especially all the patterns he uses in his illustrations.

Cuenca ’10

August 30, 2010

This weekend, we headed to Cuenca a small city in Central Spain. (165 km away from Madrid). What I loved most, are the small colored houses: each one is different then the one next to it. Lovely! Take a look!

Thyssen exhibition: concept and sketches

June 23, 2010

I worked on the painting “M.Valerii Martialis Epigrammata” (1473-1474) below , and I redrew the animals that I found inside (a monkey, a rabbit, 2 flowers and 2 birds, the base which is an onion was inspired from the main painting of Giovanna). I did a vertical composition (each animal comes on top of the other) to remind of the vertical composition of the painting. All animals come in a profile position because the exhibition is mainly about profile depiction in the Renaissance.

Guess what? My designs were chosen. Lamps, vases, trays, booklets and pencils were produced and are currently on the shelves in the museum shop :). In addition to that, I am currently working on jewelry which will be done on the 30th, and sold there as well. Yey! So excited.

Below you can see the first sketches I did. And then are the final items I did. These pictures were taken yesterday at my final year project presentation. We were told that we could put on our table any of the designs we did all over the year.

I found this graffiti 2 days ago, walking in Calle de Amaniel. I thought it was really funny. 🙂
