Steve Kim

 

Am I crazy or are  Steve Kim’s ghostly figurative paintings look like a mix between Egon Schiele, and Richard Diebenkorn’s  paintings?

Sharjah Biennial & Art Dubai: Day 7

While in Dubai & Sharjah I had the chance to see some amazing arabic and persian calligraphy. If you’ve ever been into typography or graffiti you will surely walk away from this region with a renewed appreciation for the amazing calligraphy you find around every corner.

Sharjah Biennial: Day 5…. The Sheikhs!

 

One of my favorite pastimes while in Dubai & Sharjah is to photograph all the photos and paintings of the various Sheikhs in every single building that you enter. They all vary in scale, medium, and content but all are fascinating. I think we should take this practice up in the states, plastering Obama’s photos and paintings behind every single business desk.

Art Dubai/Sharjah Biennial: Day 4

 

Art Dubai Opens today but I had a chance to sneak in yesterday and take some shots before the masses stormed the fair. As a result I don’t have the names of all the artists/galleries but there’s still some good eye candy.

Sharjah Biennial : Day 2

I finally arrived in Sharjah after a grueling 20 hour flight. After dropping my bags at the hotel I headed straight towards the hotel.  Sharjah & Dubai are filled with intriguing visual stimuli. Some of the most interesting images in Dubai are the posters, photos, and paintings of the various Sheikhs. My favorite of these signs is the massive ligh tbox depicting Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan on the famous Sheik Zayed Road.

 

 

 I’ve been to Dubai and Sharjah several times and have always loved these sun visors on the backs of cars. You’ll see them all over the place depicting the royal family behind a flapping U.A.E flag. I’m sure that we’ll be seeing images of Obama on the backs of car windows in no time.
