Hamad Al Humaidhan is a young boy of 12 and has been painting since the age of 7. His early exhibitions were in England; the family lives in the United Kingdom where his mother is seeking a doctorate in Microbiology.
Initially, Hamad’s love of art started as a hobby. This soon became an addiction with him visiting museums, art galleries and historic buildings rich in culture to advance to what was becoming his passion. His early exhibitions were held in England; where he has been featured in local and national newspapers following his sell-out exhibitions. In May 2010, Hamad was commissioned to create the Birthday Card in celebration of the 180th Anniversary of Covent Garden market in London. This attracted international media interest of outlets such as the BBC and ITV.
Hamad paints his world with youthful emotions—his characters some real, some legendary and others just imaginary are composed with mastery. His paintings are vivid and youthful expressions, which today can be compared to any established artists developing their subjects on society.
Hamad Al Humaidhan placed fourth in Top Tenz list of Exceptional Children and Teenagers and has been featured on the BBC, amongst other major media outlets. Proceeds from Hamad’s exhibition will go to the Kuwait Dream Centre for autistic children.
Public Programs: Painting Class for Children Ages 12 and under.
Along with the exhibition there will be painting events on the 18, 19 and 20 December whereby young children can join Hamad to paint from 4 to 6pm.
