Painting in Bahrain

Posted by on Nov 29, 2019 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I created a series of live event digital paintings using the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Procreate app at the 18th Arab Businessmen and Investors Conference (ABIC 2019) in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain, 12 – 13 November, 2019. The conference theme was 4th Industrial Revolution: Shaping The Future Digital Disruptions for a Better Tomorrow.


The first three paintings were created live at the Gala Reception in the Arcapita building on Bahrain Bay, projected on the ceiling of the foyer as I painted.
