Spacious

Three illustrations based on stories in One Thousand and One Nights (Arabian Nights) for an exhibition on safe places for women and the LGBT community.
Three illustrations based on stories in One Thousand and One Nights (Arabian Nights) for the exhibition Spacious held in the tent gallery of Evolution House, Edinburgh College of Art on the 28th June to 2nd July.

Spacious was a group exhibition organised by Megan Wallace with the intention “to provide a safe space in order to open up discussion about ideas of sexuality and gender.” The event was held 28th June to 2nd of July in the Tent Gallery at Edinburgh College of Art. I submitted some of my illustrations based on the One Thousand and One Nights (or Arabian Nights). I used these stories because the heroine, Scheherazade, tells stories to her husband, the Sultan, who intends to kill her after being married for a day. To avoid this fate, Scheherazade uses her wit and creativity to entertain the Sultan for One Thousand and One Nights, legend has it.
