Great place! Lots of history here. Visited here while on vacation and it was extraordinary. If you're an artist or just admire art, highly recommend stopping by. Thank you for such a great experience.
It is an amazing place! The artist, Lidia, gave me a private tour of the house, and I had an amzing time with her. She is an extremely intelligent and passionate lady. Cannot believe that she is 85 years old, and still so full of life! The mirror works are beautiful and the paintings from her late husband, Khalifa Qattan, (displayed upstairs) are great. You rarely see such great paintings in Muslim countries. Lidia spent almost 3 hours with me, and I felt so privileged. Such an honor to get to know a great artist. Also, Lidia and her daughter showed me such a warm hospitality. Prepared cold drinks for a humid day, small snack for the road, and lovely souvenirs. Thank you so much! Definitely worth visiting in Kuwait!! They have a bit strick Covid regulations, but it was understandable, cause the artist still lives in that place. (It was private residence, and the artist is getting old. Her health should be taken care of.) Should be appreciated by many people.
