About the Artist:
Alexandre Orion is a multimedia artist from São Paulo, Brazil. Orion started his practice in 1992, inspired by the influence of urban culture and the world of graffiti. He soon began to interact with the city in his own unique way. In his words: “A city is not a gallery; cities are themselves full of hidden meanings.” It is precisely the obscured issues of a city that inspire his work and he involves passers-by to bring these issues to life.
Location: MIA Park Kiosk 1, Museum of Islamic Art, P.O. Box 2777 Doha, Qatar
Time: 2PM – 5PM
