Upholding the brand’s values and continuing its patronage for art and local artists, Galeries Lafayette Doha has showcased the work of Qatar-based Serbian graffiti artist Dimitrije Bugarski.

A special gathering was organized for the media, members of the press and bloggers on September 4, 2019, where the artist expressed himself through a live painting on a huge canvas of 2.5m in height x 5m in length.

Known for his artwork at the Doha Fire Station, ‘100 Days of Blockade’, Bugarski is the new artist of the season at Galeries Lafayette Doha’s Art Corner. His art exhibition 'Recall' will be on display at the iconic French department store till September 15, 2019.

The must-see exhibition draws inspiration from the artist's early-childhood obsession with cheetahs. The new art collection can be considered a remake of his first drawings, which were simplified but vivid at the same time. Eleven pieces exhibited in 'Recall' shows the cheetah and explores different styles the shape can take.

Talking about the collaboration with Galeries Lafayette Doha, Dimitrije Bugarski said: “It is indeed a pleasure to be able to display my work at one of the most iconic landmarks of Qatar. It is a perfect stage for reaching out to the public and letting them experience my art, which is a manifestation of my thoughts and ideas."

The Serbian graffiti and visual artist combines realism with abstraction through his focus on street art as a way of using public art as an urban intervention. He has been involved in a number of projects in Doha, most notable being the watchtower at the Doha Fire Station, the drive-in project at Aspire Zone and Katara Hospitality.
