For the love of Art

Dana Malek, a recent high school graduate and a teenager with full of dreams, is already pursuing her passion for art.  Read on to find out more about the young teenager’s  inspiration, strengths and her love for art.

We see a lot of colours and textures in your work. Where do you get your inspiration from?

A lot my work flows freely on a canvas, depending on how I feel. My mood dictates the colours I use and my thoughts allow me to express the things I cannot say. At times my imagination runs wild as music flows through my ears and makes it more enjoyable to paint.

Do you ever come across a block when painting? How do you overcome it?

Yes, I can definitely say that I do come across a block while painting one too many times. Nevertheless once I start a piece I’m ever ready to finish it, so I guess determination alongside other forms of art such music or sculpting etc while taking a break from my current piece. Plugging in my earphones and listening to my favourite songs helps innovates me most in such situations.

What sets your artwork apart from that of the other artists?

Aside from all respective artists I would say that my work incorporates innumerable features that speak for itself. My work is a mixture of everything, I don’t really like to limit myself, so I try to mix and match as much as I can.

What are you currently working on? Tell us more.

At the moment I’m putting together my thoughts for my newest piece. I also plan to complete my unfinished pieces during the summer. To include, I will also be carrying out my experimental prosthetic makeup projects that I absolutely find so fascinating.

What are your future plans.

I plan to flourish in the arts stream, however right now I am skeptical about which field I would like to specialize in.

Bahrain is brimming with talented individuals such as yourself. What do you think about the arts scene in Bahrain?

Bahrain may be small but there are so many talented people just waiting to shine but are not given the chance. Adliya Block 338 in particular is quite an eye catcher, given its aesthetic feel and the restaurants. There should be more of it, giving every artist an opportunity to showcase their work. I feel as though the art scene is not as appreciated as it should be.
