Thanks UAE + 2 New Paintings!

Needed to take a moment and say thank you, UAE. More specifically, thank you Anna Seamen for your amazing interview and journalism. And thank you, The National for highlighting my "quest for color"! Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I was totally stoked for the last few days. I've been on cloud nine. I even started dancing with this crazy lady in my apartment. All because of this great news (literally).

A few months ago, Anna contacted me about covering me in the paper. She arrived at my Reem Island apartment and studio and we talked about some very deep ish y'all. Not just about my art, but about life, changes, and surviving the bleak landscapes of the desert. I was honest, thanks to her being so easy to talk to. It was actually quite fun.

Other than that, I've been dancing in the studio too. Check out my two latest pieces:

"Girls in Brooklyn" 30x40" canvas www.amirarahim.com

 

"My Particular Infinite" 30x24" canvas www.amirarahim.com

Back to painting, or zumba, haha!
