Earlier tonight I passed by Bayt Lothan to check out Visual Therapy's 2nd art show titled Waraq, a paper based art exhibition by a group of talented local artists such as Deena Qabazard, F160, Shahad Al Asfoor, Wael Al Khars, and Mohammed Al Kouh.
Waraq seeks to explore the unconventional use of the paper medium. You'll see different and unique techniques used including cutting, folding, and even carving. Different paper based items, such as newspaper, are also utilized. Through this, Waraq intends to reexamine the identity of the paper medium revealing its potential to take on a variety of forms. I'm familiar with the creative work done by Deena Qabazard and F160, however the rest of the artists were new to me, I especially loved Shahad Al Asfoor's work, shown in the photo above. The attention to detail is just mind-blowing, I felt the amount of time and effort put in making these pieces is just insane. Definitely worth checking out.
Tomorrow is the last day for Waraq exhibition at Bayt Lothan, located in Salmiya, Kuwait.
