Ibrahim Al Atiyah from Kuwait presents a captivating tribute to the traditional 'Sadu' design found in Bedouin culture. The recurring triangle motif pays homage to this rich heritage, often seen on pillows and loungers, while seamlessly incorporating it into a modern context. His use of calligraphy, a carefully chosen palette, and references to Sadu all serve to mirror the beauty and cultural depth of the Arabian desert.
