A seminar presented by Mr. Muhammed Sharaf titled “Designer Identity”.
Mohammad Sharaf is a Kuwait-based designer and the director of Sharaf Studio. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and another bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. He later earned his MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Sharaf is interested in social and political symbolism and specializes in visual identity, typography and editorial design.
In 2011, he started a series of works entitled “Visual Reactions” which he used to communicate his views on rising local, regional, and international issues. His latest work, “Cemetery of Banned Books”, was a public art intervention created to protest against censorship in Kuwait.
Sharaf continues to expand in his use of mediums, creating bold, powerful and thought-provoking visuals alongside themes that reflect on current society.
