Caricature gallery in memory of Abdulredha
August 24, 2017, 11:06 am

Rasem El-Basma, a caricature gallery that opened at Muse Lounge, Symphony Mall, on Wednesday, features 21 cartoons by 20 artists from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member states as a tribute to Kuwait's great artist Abdulhussain Abdulredha. The three-day event is the fruit of cooperation among a number of cartoonists in the region and the cultural seminars forum.

The cartoons on display shed light on the various stages of Abdulredha's artistic life over 55 years, Abdullah Al-Falah, director of Muse Lounge Bookstore and Cafe, told KUNA.

The gallery is a token of appreciation for Abdulredha's rich contributions to artistic movement in Kuwait and the Gulf region at large, he pointed out. Abdulsalam Maqboul, a Kuwaiti cartoonist, said the works on display reflect the creativity of the participating artists and their loyalty to the late artist. Abdulredha, a hugely popular actor, director, playwright and producer passed away in London on August 11 at the age of 67.
