Doha artist to exhibit works on Mt Everest
DOHA DOHA-BASED abstract artist Edgy will exhibit a fresh set of his works, above Base Camp of Mt Everest, in Nepal, on October 15.
The effort billed ‘The Highest Art Exhibition in the World’ will feature 10 paintings in abstract and surreal forms with the theme ‘Success’. It will be the second of the four-part unique art series of the Australian national.
Talking to Qatar Tribune recently, Edgy said besides literally being the highest place in the world, he has chosen Mt Everest to be the venue of his next art venture because of its iconic status. Edgy has always been on the lookout for special sites for his much-talked about four-part art series.
“This exhibition will run from 2 to 5 pm for one day only on October 15 above Base Camp, subject to weather condition.
The 10 paintings I will exhibit, are inspired by the theme ‘Success’, which is rather ambiguous given the world’s current economic and social challenges.
“I always believe that art is not meant to be easy. Anyone making the effort to come to the exhibition will love the experience as long as our team make it and we don’t get hace or hape (high altitude cardiovascular oedema or pulmonary oedema),” the artist added.
Recently, he staged ‘The Hottest Art Exhibition in the World’ atop the Qatari landmark Singing Sand Dunes. Edgy also announced that his unique art series will be followed by ‘The Coldest Art Exhibition in the World’ which he hopes to stage in Siberia and then ‘The Lowest Art Exhibition in the World’ which he plans to stage at the Dead Sea.
The artist has also been working on a Global Iconic Art Project called “Sticks” with Australian Aboriginal Elder Joy Murphy Wandin (great great niece of famous Aboriginal painter William Barak), which is planned for world release in 2012.
