Fay Al Homoud, creator of q8streetart, says about her project:
“It is basically an account that was first created about a year ago on Instagram to showcase the emerging street art in Kuwait.
I myself have always had a fascination with street art. Being a photographer and traveler street art has always caught my attention and the different styles I’ve come across in different countries has made me gain a much deeper appreciation towards the artists for having the freedom and ability to display their work in the streets.
Street art to me is a form of expressing things that cannot easily be put into words, it’s a gateway for people to open their minds and be exposed to art in its many forms. Words and images are powerful and when you see splashes of color on a dull wall it catches your attention making you stand there in silence analyzing every paint stroke thinking what the artists message is.
