Maymanah Farhat considers Kamal Boullata`s monograph on painter Hani Zurob in a brief post that marks the beginning of a new series of short reviews on the culture page. Maymanah also interviews artist and art magazine publisher Amir H. Fallah as he debuts new portraits and still-lifes at The Third Line gallery in Dubai.
