Art watch: Saif Mhaisen opens solo exhibition 'Work'
Part of Tashkeel's first solo project
Aimed at providing a platform for emerging artists to bring their artworks to the public sphere, Tashkeel's first solo programme now presents Work by Dubai artist Saif Mhaisen, a past winner of the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award. The debut solo exhibition features a body of work that tells the artist's life story through a variety of mediums including photography and painting.
Subjects in the interdisciplinary show include figures and events of importance in Mhaisen's life and while each medium narrates a story, each one is seemingly created with very different thought processes whereby some will include his own involvement and others, a distinct sense of detachment.
Saif Mhaisen's Work will run from January 25 - February 21, 2016 at Tashkeel's Al Fahidi Gallery, Dubai.
