Blast from the Past
by Ahmed Alrefaie
This work appears in Khabar Keslan Issue 2. PASSAGE
As an artist, I have ventured in experimenting with different artistic styles, but have found myself deeply involved in a theme that captures the Arabian culture and traditions.
My art revolves around bringing culture and tradition into the modern age. In this day and age, I find that we are slowly moving away from our cultural values; but by inviting tradition into a form of modern art, I hope to bridge this gap or at least narrow it down.
As young as 10 years old, Ahmed Alrefaie started developing an interest in art and its differing forms. The Kuwaiti artist started with sketches, and developed his style as a an illustrator and graphic designer. He spends his time creating art that revives the Arabian culture and tradition in a more modern light.
