Less talk, more colour.
Abraaj Capital prize winner Shezad Dawood's light installations at Paradise Row.
Toy Soldier at Traffic.
Farhad Moshiri's comic-strip like blinding cowboys at The Third Line
Can't seem to recall the Iranian duo brothers behind this fantastic mixed media piece of the Queen (?) dining with the pope (?) and Lady ?? (Muna, help?)
Another fantastically blinding ornamental pop piece by who else, but Farhad Moshiri
Anish Kapoor's copper concave (or is it convex?) piece.
Simeen Farhat's Faezah, beautiful portrait. Her braids and printed dress remind me of the Bahraini women in the fifties wearing their dresses from qmash Bahraini mal khaya6 going to their grandfather's Nakhal..
And of course, you can't pass an international arts fair without a Damien Hirst lying around. This piece at the White Cube sold for a cool US$3 million as I recall - hand-placed diamonds in a case.
