A great article by Arab News that discusses the Art of the Mid East blog in length! The article was published in today’s Arab News newspaper.
“Almost every country and region in the world has a large online presence, including blogs and websites, dedicated to their respective art scene. However, there is neither a blog nor a strong online presence totally focused on Middle Eastern art.
That’s what pushed half Finnish and half Lebanese Taymour Grahne who is currently based in Boston, to write the first blog completely dedicated to Middle Eastern art: artofthemideast.com.
“I felt it was vital that the Middle Eastern art scene including Turkish and Iranian art be represented online. I don’t want the region’s flourishing art scene to be left out of this growing trend towards the blogosphere” says Grahne who is graduating from Boston University.” (from the article cited below)
