Shurook Amin

Shurook Amin 'We'll Build This City on Art and Love': The Ayyam Gallery presents a solo exhibition of Syrian-Kuwait artist Shurooq Amin. Recognised for her cutting-edge approach to painting, which combines diverse media in the creation of bold portraits, Amin is a prominent figure of the contemporary Kuwaiti art scene. In her latest body of work, the artist explores a wide range of social maladies, from child marriage in war-affected areas to the marginalisation of migrants in the Gulf, and the moral and material ramifications of stalled construction projects such as Silk City, which initially promised the revitalisation of Kuwait’s infrastructure. Launching on 13 November, 2014 until the New Year 2015, at the Ayyam Gallery, 143 New Bond Street, W1S 2TP.
