About the Work

Kubayisi’s night time cityscapes project the bustling Emirati cities into a futuristic landscape on the border of light and dark. Seen only from high above the sky, form airplanes, or satellites, the seemingly simple landscapes invoke and refer to a highly advanced technology. Just like cities in the dark reveal secrets, these almost abstract ornamental paintings reveal a hidden message: this is what our home looks like to future generations.
