Sketches of Dar by Sarah Markes

24 May-8 June 2012. This exhibition, entitled Sketches of Dar, displays a series of drawings by the illustrator and graphic designer Sarah Markes.

The rich and colourful street life of Dar with its street scenes, vendors, overloaded bicycles and sign art inspired among the others Markes’ works.

Markes trained at the Central St. Martins of London and has lived in Dar es Salaam for the past seven years, working on an array of different educational and creative projects.

Her interest was initially caught by some old buildings around Dar, which Markes decided to portray before being demolished. Markes believes that drawings can capture a different and sometimes more vibrant image than photographs.
