Cities around the World by Nayla Saroufim
ArtScoops is delighted to present an online show of works by the Lebanese artist and art director Nayla Kai Saroufim, from July 19 to August 19, titled ‘Cities around the World’.
The exhibition features a fascinating collection of works in the artist’s signature combination of mixed media, marrying nostalgic black and white photographs of much-loved city scenes from around the world with fun, bright characters, brought to life within the location. Illustrated iconic landmarks or motifs, such as a red telephone box and bus in London, add further splashes of colour.
Saroufim draws on the urban environment for inspiration, especially architecture, with its skyscraper silhouettes, and the memories she builds in each city visited. The works featured in this show depict a variety of cities, but all convey cosmopolitan chic.
