The Artsy Fartsy World

Who would have reckoned that it’s quite enjoyable actually? For the past few months I have been visiting art galleries around Dubai and Abu Dhabi, getting inspired by the hundreds of brilliant pieces of artwork that I come across. Whether they’re photographs, paintings, sculptures, or some other odd form of art, there is always something interesting to see.

Of course, attending The Lost Fingers exclusive concert in Dubai (and they were an arm’s length away) was the highlight of the whole lot. There have been some off galleries here and there, some of them in ungodly places even, but at the end of the day it’s a good escape from an otherwise over industrious city.

I will be leaving you with some photos. And yeah Twitter is consuming a lot of my time, I will return slowly to blogging. Sorry about that!

Photo Blog Relaunched!

Yeesh! That was long!

Talk about horrible time management!

A year ago I launched my photoblog on blogger. It got some nice attention but now that I have moved to my own domain, it’s time for an upgrade. I finally finished fixing the photoblog to “acceptable and tolerable” levels (ie ready for human consumption). It still needs work but for now I can safetely launch it :D

SO GO THERE NOW!

(and compare it to the old blog if you wish)

I added a few new photos (that you have already seen anyway) but will be adding more. You can also find album collections if you wish (which will be updated frequently).

I am cooking a new project for the photo blog which I will launch soon (hopefully by 1st November)… but don’t worry I will announce the launch here too ;)

Will keep you posted!

The Clocktower

This is a beautiful piece of art, an expressive animation from a talented Cara Antonelli from deviantART. Watch the short animation, then check out her deviantART page as well as these two complementary pieces of art as well (here and here).

Note that dA usually changes the direct links every once in a while so if they don’t work just visit her page and find them there :)

Enjoy the video!
