Panorama drawing

Zahra Jewanjee

"Passing through Dubai's sky scrapers via car, monorail or as a pedestrian I always had an itch to draw the multitude of these tall standing structures in an oasis like concrete jungle, but wasn't sure how and when it will come on paper until I was invited to play Panographia which inspired me to once again look at these amazing high rises in the most raw sense possible. Drawing a travelogue on a personalized scroll with observation, gesture and memory was quite exciting and fun even with having the limitation of rules to play Panographia, but that in itself became challenging and through my drawing I have tried to render the infinite line of futuristic ambience that I see outside everyday. From the Arabian Sea to concrete bricks of gargantuan high rises and dissolving desert dunes is what makes Dubai to me in every sense."
