Kuwait Art Revolution – An Introduction
Art in Kuwait has started a revolution, yet artists don’t protest in the traditional sense. They always express their ideas, thoughts, emotions and what they need to convey with style. As if it were a paintbrush, mixed with the colors of their states of mind, emotions and feelings, put onto a canvas. To the photographer behind a camera, freezing that continuous eternal moment is a revolutionary moment.
Along with what has been going on all over the world, the year 2011 has given us every reason to say that it is definitely different.
Social media is proving its power of existence, and so much of what is happening around us is spreading more and more, reaching out into everyone’s mobile phones at every moment. I find it truly amazing to see how it affected people. We now have direct, instantaneuos access to just about everything) all thanks to social media. I have personally witnessed how artists began to work more, after realizing the effect of social media. New artists rise to popularity with the rising trend, while established artists are utilizing these tools to bask in the glory of fame. The availability of these services on many devices has taken names far beyond their physical borders.
