Lemondart.com was formed (2018) as a development project created by Ken Lemond designed to focus on contemporary art in the Gulf States.
Ken Lemond was the creator of the Lemond Gallery, Bearsden (Scotland) in 2000, which has grown to become one of the most successful art galleries in Scotland representing many of the country's leading contemporary artists.
Ken Lemond has also created a successful joint venture project that allows the Lemond Gallery to show on a pop-up basis in Edinburgh twice a year.
Ken Lemond is a specialist in contemporary art and is one of the foremost authorities on contemporary Scottish art.
He trained as a Scottish CA and completed his MBA before turning to full-time art supporting the growth ambitions of the Lemond Gallery.
WHY THE GULF STATES
Following a recent visit to the Gulf States to research/survey the development of contemporary art in the Gulf States, Ken Lemond sees an opportunity to introduce key Scottish artists to that geography.
He has worked with these artists to create both relevant Gulf States content and to offer a cross-section of contemporary art content.
While of the foundations of Islamic art are rooted in the cultural arab traditions, we now have the opportunity to draw on contemporary art to reflect on the rich cultural history and to offer insight into the changes that are influenced by the rapid economic development of the Middle East.
From the nomadic tribes of the desert and fishermen and pearl divers of the fishing ports, the discovery of valuable reserves of oil and gas have created fascinating new challenges for the Rulers and their people in controlling a period of adjustment, restructuring and renewal.
A fertile source of material for our artist group to consider and throw light on. Like many of the great surges in history, the strength of the development of the Gulf States will greatly assist the parallel development of the contemporary art in this period.
