The Colorful World of Hamad Al Humaidhan: Celebrated 12 Year Old Artist Holds Show for Charity.

Dar Al-Funoon and Contemporary Art Platform Kuwait (CAP Kuwait) collaborate to showcase the talent of virtuoso painter Hamid Al-Humaidhan.

Date:                           14 - 28 of December 2011
Title of Exhibition:      Colorful World
Location: Shuwaikh, Block 2, St. 28. Life Center: Top Floor. (Across from Shuwaikh Immigration Office, same building as Eureka & Midas).

Hamad Al Humaidhan is a young boy of 12 and has been painting since the age of 7. His early exhibitions were in England; the family lives in the United Kingdom where his mother is seeking a doctorate in Microbiology.

Hamad paints his world with youthful emotions—his characters, some real, some legendary and others just imaginary are composed with mastery. His paintings are vivid and youthful expressions, which today can be compared to any established artists developing their subjects on society.

Hamid Al Humaidhan placed third in Top Tenz list of Exceptional Children and Teenagers and has been featured on the BBC, amongst other major media outlets. Proceeds from Hamad’s exhibition will go to the Kuwait Dream Centre for autistic children.

Public Programs: Painting Class for Children Ages 12 and under.
Along with the exhibition there will be painting events on the 18, 19 and 20 December whereby young children can join Hamad to paint from 4 to 6pm.

CAP Hours:
Morning: 10am-1pm, Evening: 5-9pm. Sunday-Thursday. Saturday by appointment.
