Dar Al Mashreq Gallery

I went to the opening of a new gallery, Dar Al Mashreq, early last week in Salhiya Complex. 
Located on the 2nd floor, the opening was very well organized and buzzed with a mix of a young and old crowd. 
All of the artists were male, either of local or regional origins, with an impressive background of previous exhibitions held in different parts of the world. I enjoyed the variety of artwork, which ranged from sculptures to sketches and abstract paintings. Every artist had a very distinct style, but all the work was put up in a way that flowed nicely. I found most of the paintings to be very refreshing and colorful, in addition to some having a local feel.

It is refreshing to see new galleries opening up in Kuwait, as I feel they aid in promoting positive interest and appreciation for art. If you are ever in the area, I suggest taking a quick detour and giving the new gallery a visit.

Below are a few images of some of the artwork that was put up.

Dar Al Mashreq is in Salhiya Complex, Mezzanine II, Entrance 4, Shop 16.
Tel: 22996447
