Exploring themes of space through visual artist Athier’s trademark geometric forms and bold colours comes the dreamlike exhibition Nothing is Certain and Everything is Temporary at Ayyam Gallery Dubai. The British-Iraqi painter uses surrealist techniques, combining squiggles, foam and floating objects to create otherworldly pictures that weave the contemporary with the nostalgic. The colourful works of art are on display at the gallery in Alserkal Avenue until March 2020.
