About the speaker
Born and raised in Oman, Mohammed (Chndy) was rarely exposed to art. He developed his artistic interest by teaching himself all the Adobe programmes before graduating high school. He pursued a degree in Graphic Design. His first work was bought by The Green Box Museum in Amsterdam.
IN 2015, CHNDY was accepted to the Crossway Foundation’s “Journey to Japan 2015” programme and he took part in the “Journey to the USA 2016” and won best concept artwork in Stal Gallery’s young emerging artists 2016. He has worked with brands such as Vans, Carhartt and LV. Al Kindi aspires to raise awareness about the importance of creativity and art and its ability to push culture forward.
The session will be in English & sign language!
September’s Theme is Spectrum.
A band of colors, expanding definitions, a broad array of identities — we all live within multiple spectrums, colliding and intersecting with one another. Like the diversity in our foods, styles of music, and the skills we exercise, our needs are distinct with no one size fits all solution.
Understanding and championing other realities normalizes saying: What I experience, feel, and notice may not be what you know to be true. “Design for the spectrum and not the mean,” said Michael Kaufmann in his CreativeMornings talk. “How do we move beyond courteous hospitality to courageous inclusivity?”
As individuals committed to artfully living, we can paint refreshing possibilities that are not just for ourselves but also for others. Assemble your tools: Listen, look within, embrace the weird, and take the prism and flip it on its head — you’ll likely find a breathtaking blend of opportunities to make a difference.
Our Las Vegas chapter chose this month’s exploration of Spectrum and Iandry Randriamandroso illustrated the theme.
