Winter Camp (12 - 16 years): Mixtape Textiles

Starts - Sunday 11 December 2022

Graphic designer, illustrator and artist Khalid Mezaina established his personal practice in 2010, focusing on illustration and surface-based design and art. He actively participates in exhibitions, projects and residencies both in the UAE and abroad. He also facilitates workshops for children and adults, sharing his knowledge on print-based creative practices. Along with a BS in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah, Khalid holds a MFA in Textiles from Rhode Island School of Design, USA. His commissioned and self-initiated projects range from prints, installations and murals, to designs for publications, stationery, packaging, apparel and textiles. His works are a reflection of his influences and personal interests, as well as things that are on his mind – a nod to comic books, music and dance, traditional costumes and textiles from around the world, the impact of matriarchy in his life and daily findings from around the city he calls home. Khalid hopes that his work reaches a wider audience that moves beyond gallery walls and exhibitions spaces and puts a smile on people’s faces.

This workshop will be an opportunity for young artists to explore how can music be translated into visual work. By exploring visual rhythm through quality of line and repetition, participants will engage in experimental printing techniques such as taping, canning and stamp making. This will allow them to create a textile piece that will reflect their personal relationship to music with their own series of patterns.
