If you are in London this week, pass by the Royal College of Art for our
Work in Progress show, my work, and that of my super talented
colleagues will be on display, it's definitely not one to miss!
It's on from 23-27 July from 10.30-5.30 pm daily
at the RCA, Kensington
And you can get a sneak peek via our facebook page:
I hope to see your friendly faces there!
As part of a commission I had to research a little about the Cristobal Balenciaga,
a veritable master of the craft of couture. I spent an hour drooling over his sculptural
clothes, luckily none of it dropped on the paper I was drawing on.
You can see some beautiful pieces on the website of the Museo Cristobal Balenciaga.
The lovely people at Agenda Culturel in Beirut decided to take a stab at asking me some
questions, to which I had to respond through illustrations. I used the answers to create this
short story, another installation for the My life in the movies series. The images featured
are based on the seminal film Around the pink house by the Lebanese artists
The questions (translated from the original French) :
What is the main theme in your illustrations?
What are you working on at the moment?
What are your future projects?
What is your wildest desire?
Who are your favorite artists?
How do you describe Lebanon?
There is nothing greater than good free music in this world, and Safar Barlik
is a new artist from Beirut who just released his EP on bandcamp for you to grab.
It's the first time I'm singing on a recorded track, and it's pretty scary but
I hope I get to do it again because it's really fun!
I really enjoyed listening to the tracks and watching the process behind them,
Safar Barlik is a project that really captures the boredom and restlessness of
Lebanese youth today. The lyrics and melodies are deceptively simple but they
paint a picture of a whole generation of blasé Beirutis.
So please be kind with us newbies when you give the album a listen,
hope you enjoy it!
