Nasser Alzayani Featured on Huffington Post

Nasser Alzayani, a Bahraini-American artist and architecture student at the American University of Sharjah, was featured as a resident artist at this year’s Middle East Now festival in Florence. Alzayani produced a special project for the festival; titled “Finding the Middle East in Florence,” he created a series of notebooks that documented Arab influences found in the city through original sketches. Huffington Post recently interviewed Alzayani about the project, his inspiration, and his experience sketching Florence.
