Turning Point was the title of Tashkeel’s most recent competition. Tashkeel is a Dubai based creative hub for artists all over the world. In collaboration with Van Cleef & Arpels and Design Days Dubai, Tashkeel’s Turning Point comprised of works in progress, pieces that shed light on the creative process and that represented an instrumental point in the creation of a final project. The attached photo is my oil painting that I had submitted to their competition, titled ‘Kazimir Malevich x Flavian Woman.’
It was a hybrid painting of what would happen if artist Kazimir Malevich was to redesign the iconic Bust of a Flavian Woman.
Originally made for my final project for my Art History course at University*, I was still glad I got nominated as the top 10 submissions. I may not have won the project but I did get an A* on my Art History final project. Thanks to this competition my urge to win in the coming years is now tripled! For now ‘Top 10 Middle East Emergent Artist” shall do (:
