ART+DESGN exhibition will take place on the 10th to 13th November 2016 at the Square Gallery, Battersea Square, London.
Exhibited will be original paintings of a selection of styles by Dr Hanaa Alasam, and some beautiful pieces of jewellery by the designers Dawser Ramatalla and Areej Baldawi. All are welcomed.
Dr Hanaa Alasam - Painter
Dr Hanaa Alasam has held a variety of positions during her professional life, including being an accomplished academic, investment director, entrepreneur, and TV producer. Her latest venture since her retirement has been as n artist and a painter, going back to her love of the arts since she was a child.
Hanaa’s style is an eclectic mix of portraits and abstract modernist pieces. She experimented with different media to produce sometimes hauntingly beautiful paintings, and now uses acrylic for most of her work.
Hanaa’s Iraqi heritage means that her paintings embody some traditional folklore as well as modernist touches, marrying the past and future into conceptual creations.
Hanaa’s portraits powerfully display the emotions of her subjects. Her abstracts changes with her emotions and using multimedia material brings her vibrant colours to life
Areej Baldawi - Jeweller
My work is a reflection of all that inspires me. Over the last fifteen years I have exhibited in the V&A gallery, multiple craft fairs and international jewellery shows. I take great pride in producing pieces that are one of a kind and modern and hope that whoever purchases my jewellery experiences the same joy I had in creating them. I have knotted, shaped and bent silver to sit with beautiful natural semi precious stones and pearls. Modern tactile artistry for you to enjoy.
