Hello, my name is Karim M. I am in the 8th grade at ACS Abu Dhabi, originally from Lebanon. I like very detailed art and abstract art like northern lights by Douglas Coupland. I am currently working on replicating the Starry Night by, Vincent Van Gogh. I like the style of Van Gogh’s pieces, abstract and detailed, that is why I choose the piece to replicate. I like other artists like Douglas Coupland, as mentioned earlier, for his abstract work. Van Gogh, Salvador Dali, are other artists that have done numerous pieces of abstract and detailed work and I admire them because of that. This was my first attempt on using acrylic paint to do any sort of replicating. in the past, I have always been a custom to graphite on paper media in re-creating art. Abu Dhabi is about to release their own louvre in Abu Dhabi, which shows that Abu Dhabi is starting to lean towards the artistic side of life.
