The Art of 'Obstruction'

The A4 Space in Alserkal Avenue makes for a superb retreat from the hustle bustle of the city. Until recently, its interiors had a black exhaust pipe - running all the way from the ceiling to the middle of the walls - that was doing absolutely no favours to its otherwise quirky décor. That's when i was contacted to create something for the wall, that shows the offerings of the space in an interesting manner. Initially, I tried to convince them to paint it white so that I could create something without any intervention, but that was not the solution. After giving it some thought, I decided to use the black pipe as a part of my illustration rather than seeing it as an obstruction.
