The Davyd Whaley Foundation held a pop-up exhibition of Davyd’s work at Samuel Freeman Gallery to launch the Foundation’s grant program for LA-based artists. It was mobbed!
Srrounded by a messy array of paint tubes, brushes and paper cutouts, the little girl focuses intently on the canvas in front of her.
Not yet 7 years old, Shah Bibi Tarakhail rarely looks up, as she takes a brush and applies swirling colors of paint to the canvas. She starts using her left hand, then a few minutes later switches to her right — a prosthetic.
A memorial service will be held this Saturday, October 25th to commemorate and pay homage to Davyd Whaley’s life and contributions to the art world.
