Doha Fire Station

German street artists paint Doha Fire Station

The German Embassy Doha and the Goethe-Institut Gulf Region cooperate with Qatar Museums and the Doha Fire Station to bring German street artist Kera and his artist colleague Tomislav Topic to Qatar. Together they will create art to cover the walls at the Doha Fire Station from 20 to 28 October as part of the Qatar Germany 2017 Year of Culture.

From this week, visitors to the Fire Station Artist in Residence will see the two artists at work every afternoon and during the early evening  from 20 to 28 October 2017. Both artists draw inspiration for their art works from the surfaces and the surroundings of the walls they are working on.
On 25 October 2017 at 7:30 pm Kera and Tomislav invite interested art enthusiasts to the Doha Fire Station to discuss their artwork. The “Meet the Artists” talk will be hosted by Baha Abudaya, curator of the Doha Fire Station.

Furthermore Kera and Tomislav Topic will give a workshop for students of the German International School Doha.
