ayoub hussien passed away today. my favorite kuwaiti artist. i’m not just fangirling but i can just sit and look at his paintings forever. forever. forever. and ever.
he was amazing. his work was beautiful and amazing.
he told me (or someone i was next to/i dont remember) he painted them from memory. not pictures. and if you see the paintings you’ll understand. how. how. and i just look at this paintings and think how did he think of that how did he paint that. that light. those legs. that texture of the wood. amazing paintings. he talked about the open field paintings or the back of his house.
ohdearGod. allah yr7ama. his work was amazing
and now you know how it feels to leave a part of history/be a part of history, now i feel like we lost a chunk to history and the rest won’t be a part of what he was. allah yr7ama inshallah.
every time i see his paintings i feel like a loss or i dontknowwhat and his paintings are everywhere in our house
his wife passed away before him and i’m sure that was tiring and he was sick too. it’s just
there’s so much more i want to write but i don’t know what to write. allah yr7ama
As long as u’re surrounded by people u’re going to be doubting urself, ur ability, u’re gonna forget urself, u’re gonna be shaken, u’re gonna think u’re as behind as everyone else, u’re gonna be feeling down. But u have to remember u have to remind urself it’s a bunch of BS u’ve been thro all this u have to remind urself of ur strength and what other ppl are just going thro, u’ve been through ages ago. Whether it’s life/design/projects/death/dance/writing/working/grading/playing. And u have to remind urself u’re strong enough. B/c as long as u’re surrounded by people, no matter how good they are you will forget how farther ahead and stronger u are and that u can do this. U have to remind urself. It’s not as crazy and tough as everyone makes it to be u’ve got experience just remember that
we’re at the very end of 2012 and no one has found a way to fix a hard disc failure??
or a way to have back up that doesn’t require us humans to say yes or no to back up??
laptops especially Apple products cost a lot and they keep having problems, with being slow and crashing and getting broken, while my lenovo PC has been here for years and built a life and is still functioning well. what is up with that!
the technology should be pushing us forward but all its problems keep hauling us back.
yes we are lazy, we need things to be smart. we expect them to work. they should work. a phone shouldn’t heat up and be called a flight risk and compared to a bomb (iPhone, this summer, i laughed in the woman’s face) and a laptop shouldn’t be slow and have a hard drive crash where everything’s gone (i didn’t back up.. too lazy or didn’t think about it.. and come on what are the odds! it was JUST functioning) less than a year after purchase. i don’t care about the laptop, i want my PICTURES.
we need things fast and just do the work and the back up work without us humans having to do it and not prone to getting ruined we have much better things to do and we don’t speak computer.
i like to think of myself as a hurricane
paint strokes also relate to it inside of me release it. calm eye of the hurricane depressed quiet. outside loud effect everyone
My table in twitter’s “cinematic” effect. This is basically making us rethink the square. I’m loving how everything’s turning into edit mode! Now when can we have italics for fonts in our phones?:D
Acrylic, board marker, and nailpolish… Thinking of table of contents or intro page of my process book
