Newsletter 11
Spring Newsletter
Dubai, April 2013


Dear Art friends, Dear All,

In this newsletter I would like to share some exciting art news with you.

First of all I finalized my latest painting of the “Beautiful people series” nr 3, Zara the daughter of my friend Gulshan (she is the art teacher at the Mawaheb art studio in Dubai). You can have a more detailed look at the painting at my website in the new purple gallery dedicated to my “Beautiful People Series” project. The painting of Zara will be published in a museum guide by curator dottori Salavatore Russo.

Hopefully we are able to find sponsors for the paintings as ideas regarding a charity projekt in India are getting shape. Soon there will be a website only dedicated to my charity projects.

A presentation of my painting Reyam can be found in Basak Malone ‘s NY Art Guide.

The official guide from the Biennale de Palermo is on its way and I will give you an update on this in the next newsletter.

I just received a copy of the Art guide/Kunstgids and it is a very beautiful guide as always (you can find "Mawaheb" at page67).

My painting "Mata Hari" (link Oriental gallery) has been valued at 28.000 Euros (140.000 Dhs) by dr. Paolo Levi, Art curator and Art critic.

I received the approval for an exhibition at the famous Pullitzer Hotel in Amsterdam (September 2013) which is just opposite to our house and atelier all directed by the owners of the art guide Pieter de Groot en Francine Brugman. Hopefully this will be a chance again to sell some of my works for the charity.
