‘Drawing from Msheireb’, Doha

25 – 30 November 2010

Seven figurative artists from the UK were invited by Msheireb Properties to Doha to record the people, memories and buildings in Msheireb through drawing before the area is completely rebuilt. The artists were Mark Cazalet, who led the project, Ellie Davis, Pippa Smith, Leonie Lachlan, Rossen Daskalov, Edward Coyle and myself, all alumni from The Prince’s Drawing School.

The drawings below were made using marker pens and scraps of material found on the rooftops of the buildings, such as abandoned exercise books and discarded receipts.
