These vibrant works of art are from Laila Shawa’s current exhibition, Arabopop!, at Articulate Baboon in Cairo, Egypt. A Palestinian artist living in London, Laila is best known for her silk-screen installation Walls of Gaza and has five paintings on permanent display in The British Museum. In her most recent collection of works, she playfully updates the geometry of classical Islamic decoration with vibrant colors and an exaggeration of form. They remind Lauren and I of our travels through Morocco and Southern Spain. Thanks for sharing, Suzie!
