Hamad AlSaab & Ali Sultan : Reminiscing Kuwait II: A Tale of a Country.


The second installment of the Reminiscing Kuwait series launched in December 2007 will be held at Sultan Gallery on April 18th, 2011.

The collection features mixed media paintings with the subject Kuwait and Arabic culture in the 1950’s and 1960’s as well as video installations. Hamad & Ali’s aim is to bring back memories of the past and conserve them for the future generations. The art work presented by Hamad & Ali invites the viewer to experience history and Arabic traditions from a playful and yet very detailed point of view. Using the history as a path to the future the artists’ work involved many contemporary and traditional painting techniques combined with digital imagery and photography.

The Kuwaiti artist Hamad Al Saab and the German Iraqi artist Ali Sultan started their collaboration in 2006 focusing on digital artwork on canvas using iris print and silkscreen. From there, the work evolved and included calligraphy, acrylics, silk paint, apoxy, Swarovski crystals, stencils and different transfer techniques. Hamad & Ali’s work has been shown in solo exhibitions in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia and in collective art shows in Doha (Qatar) and the UAE and is been collected by many art appreciators in the Middle East as well as in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, the United States and South America.

Further this year Hamad & Ali’s eighth solo exhibition will be held at Lahd Gallery in London on May 26th, 2011.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Being alive without the presence of approaches to the problems you’ve solved all through your good write-up is a critical case, and those that could have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I had not encountered the website. Your actual mastery and kindness in touching every item was excellent. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for this skilled and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to suggest the sites to any person who should receive assistance on this problem.
