Khalid Mezaina launches new zine 'fade away & illustrate

We can't wait to see CA artist Khalid Mezaina's new illustration zine, 'fade away & illustrate'! The zine launches tonight, 19 March from 7.30pm, at Sikka Art Fair 2015, in an event hosted by thedesign house no. 28 in Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Zines will be on sale at the launch and for the duration of the fair (14-24 march) for just AED30. We work with Khalid for our limited edition print collection and you can buy prints of his art here.

Speaking about his new zine, Khalid says:

"After hosting a series of zine workshops over the last couple of years, I've been inspired to publish a self-initiated illustration zine titled 'fade away & illustrate'. It was a challenging process, but I'm glad to say that the zines are finally fresh off the press and ready to be shared to the world. 

'fade away & illustrate' is an attempt at gathering some of the best illustrators around town and sharing their work to the masses. Each issue a group of illustrators are asked to respond to a theme, the first issue being 'introductions'. And what better way then to introduce these talented artists but through their awesome drawings?

The title 'fade away & illustrate' is inspired by blondie (one of my favorite bands in existence) and their song 'fade away & radiate'."
