One of our favorite collaborations to date, the Rex on The Beach collection was inspired by summer feels. Rex Chouk’s creative approach was amazing and we managed to make a series of products: Beach Bags, Towels and pouches. The perfect combo for any summer vacation. 5% of sales goes towards supporting Sanad; Children’s cancer support society.
RexChouk emerged on a plane in the Summer of 2013, flying somewhere between here and there, Saudi Arabia and the West. He is made of pure bone – the first manifestation of the soul, neither white nor black. Yet as a skull, his self-portrait also represents the first mask to our spirit-selves. His paintings are a contemporary commentary of our system: characters and expressions imbued with icons and slang from global pop culture. Going beyond the typical narrative of a Saudi Arabian living in cosmopolitan America, Rex Chouk’s character rather embodies a spirit exploring corporeality, seeking to manipulate perception in order to show the sincere symmetry of our global system.
Having a passion for entrepreneurship and sustainable impact, his inspiration comes from this engineering of left brain with right brain – energy and frequency expressed in a linear way. Often linked to the painting styles of Basquiat and Haring, RexChouk says that his inspiration comes more from them as culturally active spirits, rather than as artists of specific technique. As a self-taught artist himself, he prefers to use his own hands over tools, for not only does it dry faster – a key method for his hyper-active mass production of creation – but it also lets him know exactly where to touch the canvas in order to feel the symmetrical force. As a multimedia artist exploring painting and drawing, illumination and sound, RexChouk shows us that the function of our system is the divine connection of the physical world, electrified and intoxicated.
We loved this collaboration with the talented artists Leanne. We worked with Leanne previously as a photographer, however as she ventures out into becoming an artist and illustrator we came up with this concept for the “Elements Collection” from which 5% of sales goes toward the Saudi Alzheimer’s Disease Association. Here is a little bit about Leanne in her own words.
“I am an illustrator and artist from Suffolk, UK. I studied photography and video production in Lincoln and started work as a fashion photographer in London when I first moved there seven years ago. Although I started as a fashion photographer, working with clients such as Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, my personal work was more in the direction of fine art both in photography and other mediums such as ceramics and painting. Drawing was always a big part of my life from when I was a child, art being the subject I thrived the most on throughout school. I did a foundation course in Fine art at the West Suffolk College where I developed my knowledge on drawing and painting techniques as well as translating my work to digital format.
I recently returned from a four month stay in Mexico where I did a course on ceramics and refined my style of drawing and painting, gathering inspiration from the people I met, my surroundings and the local art.
My work today is a combination of minimal, abstract line art and colourful, narrative illustrations that tell a story. My inspiration comes from the human form and female figures of power and inspiration, encouraging mindfulness and creative thinking.
Recently I have produced a book titled “Yoga for Kids” and started a series of ceramic badges for a local mindfulness organization to help promote the work they do.
The series I have produced for Bogsha are based on the four elements. Each woman encompassing the powers that these four elements possess. The goal is to promote empowerment, independence and strength, as of the role of each element. The four elements are present all around and within you. They are essential to all life, here to bring balance.
The collaboration with Prnt. was born from the love of travel from both teams prnt. and Bogsha. The concept was developed collectively and we came up with the perfect Ultimate Travel Kit which caters to every traveler for easy packing and documenting their travels through their detachable diary.
“Prnt. was created in 2016 in an aim to celebrate the thriving photography, art & design scene in the region through minimal stationery.
We started off producing planners that followed a different theme, still keeping the same essence, each year. Each month featured a photo submitted by talented regional photographers, amateur and professional, sectioning the rest of the minimally designed planner.
The positive response we got from the general public fueled our mission to grow Prnt. into much more than just that.
We take pride in the fact that our products are designed and printed in Kuwait and we’re always looking for ways to grow and collaborate within the community, showcasing regional talent in the process.”
