A canvas splashed with vibrant color. A double image portrait like a desert mirage. A traditional Qatari coat, painted with a bold, avant-garde pattern. For Doha based fashion designer, artist, and filmmaker, Fahad Al-Obaidly, true inspiration is never bound by one medium.
“Each one of these mediums has a different level of me. My life, my journey,” says Fahad during his solo art show at W Doha’s Art 29 Gallery, where the artist known for his unique and boundary-pushing fashion designs showcased a sprawling body of work from photography to paintings. “Fashion is my public face, films are my truth, and art, my purest emotions.”
Since this multi-faceted artist is never restricted by medium, we wanted to challenge Fahad to answer our questions without words, using only his artwork to tell his story.
