Graduate Success - Salu

Since completing his studies, visual communication graduate Michael Salu has kept in regular touch with the University. Michael has recently launched his own creative venture, 'Salu' and one of his first major creative challenges has been to provide creative direction for the Abraaj Group Art Prize 2014. The prize recognises exceptional mid-career artists from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia and uniquely rewards proposals rather than completed works of art.

"The result is Garden and Spring, which takes as its title that of the canonical Urdu text Bagh O Bahar - the tale of a king without an heir. The exhibition is a garden that presents itself both visually and thematically, allowing for a loose affinity, a momentary accord. By weaving five literary responses to each of the five artists’ work, we seeded a conversation about the work of each artist." says Michael.
