Emirati Expressions wall of fame :)

Finally His Excellency Dr. Zaki Nusseibeh on the far left smiling at my painting and on the right in the middle His Excellency Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan and far right His Highness Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan smiling at me, i was actually standing beside my painting but because of the cameras and the press that were surrounding us you can't really see me.

53rd Venice Biennale

thanks to ADACH whom without we the Emirati artists wouldn't have been at the Venice Biennale for the UAE & ADACH pavilion. it was simply an amazing experience! i learnt so much and all i wanted to do is to work on my paintings while i was there! but unfortunately i didn't have my laptop and tablet with me :(
this picture was taken the minute Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon entered the ADACH pavilion.

a group picture of the UAE delegation before the opening reception :)

the Emirati artist Jalal Luqman with Peter Cleaves the CEO of Emirates Foundation & his wife at the Venice Biennale.

Dr. Frauke & her husband David standing behind her at the ADACH Pavilion

the Egyptian pavilion was my favorite, when i entered and saw these huge men sculptures bending down to greet me, i was stunned!!! i just fell in love immediately :)

Venice tour

(ADACH) organized a Venice tour for us the emirati artists, Sumayyah Al Suwaidi, Noor Al Suwaidi, Mattar Bin Lahej, Jalal Luqman & Ali Al Abdan.

Hotel Danieli in Venice

this is the coffee shop in the lobby of the hotel, i just loved their cafe latte! ummmh! :) in this picture we girls were discussing the idea of going shopping because i was missing shoes to wear for the uae pavilion opening reception and alia al shamsi needed batteries for her camera! finally the rest of the girls went to the Biennale and alia and i went shopping :)

here, Emirati artist Ali Al Abdan was listening to our tour guide, who was talking to us about the history of Venice :)

Emirati artist Dr. Najat Makki is such a wonderful human being! she is one of the masters of art in the UAE, so it was an hour sitting next to her at the breakfast table :)

the renowned Emirati artists, Jalal Luqman & Abdulaqader Al Rayes, enjoying a delicious breakfast at the terrace of the hotel.

i was lucky enough to be walking through the hotel corridor to see our group sitting in the lobby, so i took the opportunity to take this photo, i really like it :)
