FALL PROGRAM

This fall, Warehouse421 is taking you back to your senses with a season full of programs for your eyes, ears and much more! Sink into your body as we bring back our outdoor film program with Cinema Akil, close your eyes as our incense workshop entices your nose, focus on your fingertips as our calligraphy course guides your penmanship, listen in on one of our monthly Khayal story-time sessions, and don’t forget to support your creative community by visiting our CLU market! Whatever you’re looking for this fall, we have a taste, a whiff, or a touch of it here at Warehouse421!

 

The season will inaugurate our newly renovated spaces with two exhibitions: So Different, So Appealing curated by Murtaza Vali; and As We Gaze Upon Her curated by Banat Collective.

About the instructor:

Yousra Wahba holds a bachelor’s in pharmaceutical studies from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cairo University. She has been working in the pharma field in Egypt for many years. In mid-2017, she moved to Dubai, UAE and is based there currently.

Yousra Wahba is a contemporary self-taught artist whose art comes directly from the heart to reality, expressing things she does not have words for. Art is her visual language to communicate through the movement of colours.

Yousra is specialised in fluid art, working between layers and always exploring the context and understanding that exist there. Following an abstract style while using either fluid acrylic on canvas or epoxy resin on wood, metal or glass, she combines these with mixed media techniques to develop her unique flair. She has mastered the skills and chemistry of these mediums to further develop her process and expand it beyond perceived boundaries. Using colours to create vitality and vibes, her work tends to focus on her flow of emotions as a woman as well as in nature. You can feel positive energy emanating from her work, which acts as a sort of healing art.

She has exhibited at Atelier Montez in Rome, Italy; Artisita Gallery, Dubai Design District; World Art Dubai in 2020 & 2021 as a solo artist; and Maldives International Art Fair 202.

Her art decorates the walls of many luxurious homes in Dubai, Sharjah, RAK, Cairo, Munich, Zurich and Beirut.
