Mahmoud Dayoub/ Syria/ b. 1981
Getting into the depths of things is the farthest thing we can do to discover them, and the word (jawhar) in Arabic is the best expression of the state of discovery that we do in response to our relationships with ourselves and with things around us, and to continue in this vast universe, I tried through my visual experience to treat and formulate this word (jawhar). The way I formulate the human body that I am drawing.

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.
