The vase series is a visual journey into Mother Earth. Flowers, plants and birds make up a borderless and hollow vase. Ahoo fuses these elements to bring the notion of freedom/ imprisonment and birth/ rebirth to the forefront. The absence of a definitive end to the vase’s structure represents a fluidity of thought and oscillating emotions ever present in the cycle of life.

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices.
Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.
At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
