The repeated triangle you see in the artist’s work is an homage to the Bedouin traditional ‘Sadu' design seen on pillows and loungers, yet placed in a contemporary context. The amalgamation of calligraphy, choice of palette and the references to the Sadu aim to emulate the beauty and richness of the Arabian desert. Sadu Above Water series is an ongoing series that immortalizes a historic cultural profile in a sea of color.

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.
