Hamad & Ali: Pop Icons

Lahd Gallery is proud to announce the premier of our first pop art exhibition featuring a Kuwaiti Pop art duo, Hamad Al Saab and Ali Sultan. Presenting the Arab culture and history through their own contemporary vision, both Hamad & Ali believe that although pop icons around the world have transcended their time to become symbols of popular heritage and national pride, their works will reflect Arab culture in a modern and internationally accessible way.
Pop art has crossed all boundaries across all nations and cultures to produce many of the twentieth century iconic images. We are all too familiar with the expression “15 minutes of fame”, a short –lived, often ephemeral phenomenon. Because popular culture is something that almost everyone can identify readily with these days, this medium has arguably become one of the most effective means of communication.

Developing a story, as an artist, requires strenuous pursuits of growth, quiet periods of surreal contemplation and reflection, and the allure of innate talent to engage the viewer.

Reminiscing Kuwait  II

A tale of a Country

Concept

A single item used to have many different uses … Today we need many different items to perform a single task.

To every journey, there is a path … to every path, there is a destination … There was a time when Kuwait was on its way to being an Arab utopia through the vision of its enlightened leaders. Unfortunately, time often manages to twist history right in front of our eyes, without us even having the slightest of notice. Let us take you through the journey of time from 1936 to 1964, by screening a collection of historic articles, pictures portraying different aspects of Kuwaiti lifestyle during that period.

By taking you through that journey, we will let you decide of where we were, where we are, and what went wrong along the way…
