Dhow Art


The old trading dhows of the UAE are brightly painted and decorated with colourful pictures.  My series on Dhow Art involves photos of the sections of the sides which I mounted on canvas.  The cracked paint, rusty bolts and old rope all add to the colour and texture.  I also photographed the decorations painted on the columns of the dhows such as flowers and patterns.  These pictures are currently being exhibited at the Majilis Gallery in Bastikaya, Dubai.
