This isn’t exactly a review since Faridon is a good friend of mine and I’m a big fan of his work, thus it wouldn’t be fair. It is, however, a post dedicated to encouraging everyone to go and see some amazing local artwork and hopefully enjoy their time as much as I did. The opening of eXPAND was last night and it was jam-packed (mashallah), with various collections of work divided into various sections. My favorite, dubbed tRACED, is a collection of traced photos of Jordanian landmarks, redone with charcoal down to the detail of a single blade of grass. One of those images is actually based on a photo in my blog’s header. So it’s definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re an art collector and are looking for some brilliant local pieces, or even if you’re looking for something to do these days. The exhibit will run until June 26th and is located right beneath Century Cinema in Zara Center.
The city bird’s eye view is phenomenal. Amazing.
thanks for the info! will check it out!

shoot! this is something i’m really missing out on!
I hate to sound like a hater, I always appreciate local talent or Arab in general yet I don’t understand how these can be called “excellent”….
Damn!! I wasn’t in Jordan for his last exhibition, and I am not there for this one neither! I wish i could see that…So waiting for the next one…or waiting for one of Firr’s exhibition in France…!
Oula: they’re around 300 to 650 JD.. all printed, i’m not sure if they are limited prints or not!
i wished if the charcoal ones were original and real! that will add some value to the exhibition.
The city birdâ€™s eye view reminds me of “Zion” from The Matrix! The simplicity and complexion of the exact same thing; RANDOMNESS!
I would gladly love to buy some of his work for my office! I need to look for his permanent retail location, if there is anything like that!
