The Lalaland series is Attamimi’s most notable series to date. The Lalaland series aims to portray a perfect state of mind - a utopian perspective on oneself and the world around them. Attamimi’s penchant for clouds have been reflected uniquely in each photograph in this series - in the artist’s words “clouds were the ultimate addition to this photography series to personify positivity, imagination and a perpetual dream like state”. Attamimi attempts to take the viewer of his works away from the limiting beliefs imposed by society’s invisible barriers and export them to a disposition of freedom and tranquility.

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.
