The Art of can, Kuwait


For the past couple of years, RED BULL, has been organizing the "Art of can" competition and exhibition in various different countries around the world. An initiative taken up by Red Bull to encourage art and recycling . Of course a little Red bull Hype and advertisement wouldn't hurt either :)

And for the first time in history, Kuwait hosted the Red bull art of can exhibition!

When the temperature is dropping mercilessly low, and when it seems like your bestest friend in the whole wide world is the cup of steaming coffee in your hands, an initiative taken up by the Bushery group, to bring the Red bull art of can exhibition to Kuwait is commendable! We actually had something SPECTACULAR to look forward to this weekend!

Well, if you're wondering why I'm taking so much ineterst in this, buckle up ma chere !!  :)





Ah THAT'S RIGHT! I HAD AN ENTRY BIATCH!
 ok, sorry, got a little carried off, I dint win even a complementary prize, and I still get carried away. 
tsk tsk ! Silly girl !



To prevent any confusions here, and to aid the total understanding of my  sweat and blood, I’ll explain my work a bit,

 (a friend of mine asked me,”What is the red bull doing to the baby bottle?”  YIKES!)


So the silver tilting mass that you see, yea, that’s supposed to be the Empire state building.
 Oh yeah! Big ideas! Wait a minute, It does look like a baby bottle, but I wasn’t the architect of The Empire state,  I’m just a mere copier, :D so well…



In my work, Red bull is holding up the falling Stock exchange. ( the ‘tilting’ symbolises the crashing financial crisis). And, as you may agree, red bull signifies Energy, vitality and vigour.
So to conclude, all I was trying to say is,  “With determination, vitality and vigour, we can overcome anything, including the financial crisis that’s choking a lot of us  of dear life.”
Ta-daaaaaaaaaaa!



 When I was standing amongst the other artists waiting for the emcee to declare the winner, I had little hopes, as you can see, BUT my family was very expectant. They thought I had a commendable idea behind the badly executed master piece. 

End of story, A scorpion, Lady gaga costume and  a huge silver bull took home the prizes. So much for deep thinking! :D
Apparently, they were looking for JUST art! :D
