Today's Ramadan item is a pillow for 75 starcoins, inspired by Wijdan Ali, she is a Jordanian Calligrapher and artist.
Ali was born in Amman, Jordan where she currently resides. She received her B.A. in history from Beirut University College in 1961, while studying art privately. She received a Ph.D. in Islamic art from the University of London in 1993.
Ali concentrates much of her artistic effort on themes of universal tragedy, particularly the tragic events in Arab history which took place in Carbala during the seventh century. In her art she develops the traditions of Arabic calligraphy in a modern format and forms part of the contemporary school of Arabic calligraphic painting. Her work, which has won awards in Belgium and France, is found in museums and private collections internationally.
In 1989 Ali edited Contemporary Art from the Islamic World. She is the director of the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, which she founded. Some of the places she has had solo exhibitions are: London; Berlin; Amman, Jordan; Madrid; Pakistan; and the United States.
Now the issue is with the MORTAL KISS item, it's supposed to be a snowy white wolf, which i wanted so badly, for 25 stardollars (as usual: 0_0), here's the problem: when you try to buy it it shows a message that the item is no longer available. Weird.
One of the reasons i love Stardoll is because they always put awesome clothes inspired by real life designs. Today's pick of the day is actually a clutch by ALEXANDER MCQUEEN (R.I.P), i loved his designs, still do, everything about Alexander McQueen is just perfect.
Today's item is for superstars, it's a sofa inspired by Zaha Hadid, she's an Iraqi- British architect. You can get the sofa for 12 Stardollars.
Hadid was born in 1950 in Baghdad, Iraq. She received a degree in mathematics from the American University of Beirut before moving to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London.
After graduating she worked with her former teachers, Rem Koolhaas and Elia Zenghelis at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, becoming a partner in 1977. It was with Koolhaas that she met the engineer Peter Rice who gave her support and encouragement early on, at a time when her work seemed difficult to build. In 1980 she established her own London-based practice. During the 1980s she also taught at the Architectural Association. She has also taught at prestigious institutions around the world; she held the Kenzo Tange Chair at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, the Sullivan Chair at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture, guest professorships at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg, the Knowlton School of Architecture, at The Ohio State University, the Masters Studio at Columbia University, New York and the Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor of Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut. In addition, she was made Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and an Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. She has been on the Board of Trustees of The Architecture Foundation. She is currently Professor at theUniversity of Applied Arts Vienna in Austria.
