Dasman Art Jam “Away From The Usual”

06 - April - 2017

National Real Estate Company (NREC) hosted “Dasman Art Jam” which was held on Wednesday April 5 2017 at Dasman Complex, one of NREC’s projects in Sharq, Kuwait City. The Art Jam which was attended by a large number of art lovers and critics, was held under the theme “Away From the Usual” in collaboration with Red Bull Kuwait, DJ Kaid, and DJ Liilii.

The event started with a word from the organizers to familiarize participants with the Art Jam concept, and the distribution of art supplies. All participants gathered in the Dasman Complex courtyard to unleash their creative talent and artistic vision on canvas, accompanied with live music.

“It is my pleasure to participate in this Art Jam and to be a part of this event tonight which is really extraordinary. We were given the chance to portray our emotions and talents and prove our skills in a live show in front of audience and art enthusiasts” commented one of the participating artists.

He then added,” I’d like to thank the organizers for this forward looking event and I do hope that such an event will be repeated and will become one of the several key Kuwaiti art events that are frequently witnessed during the year.”

The Art Jam concluded by selecting the top three paintings that captured the audience’s imagination. With the aid of judges Sarah Chouari, owner of Art Space and Mohammad Abou Hakmeh, also known as “Monstariam”, the winner of the first place was awarded KD300, while the second place won a Photoshop training at New Horizons Institute, while the third winner received a set of art and drawing supplies from Al Metlaa Al Akhdar, a tenant in Dasman Complex.

The paintings of all participants will be displayed for a week at the ground floor of Dasman Complex in Sharq, for those interested in art to have a chance to view the portraits that were presented at the event.

This Art Jam proves the elevated artistic astuteness of the Kuwaiti community and that art is a universal language that unites people and brings places to life.
