The Story of Kuwait

Bob Venables completes a historic project for the Al-Salam Palace Museum in Kuwait.

The Al Salam Palace Museum tells the 300-year plus history of Kuwait through the achievements of its 15 rulers who have led the country since 1718, and now open, it shows six large colour illustrations by Bob as a tool to tell the country's story.

Bob's artworks involved much research, and are used up to 4.4 metres wide, layered, and printed on Perspex to create depth. 

In 2013, Studio MB was commissioned by the Amiri Diwan, the royal household of the Amir of Kuwait, to transform the shell of the former Al Salam Palace into a new, immersive national museum and visitor experience. The restored and repurposed palace now delivers 26 exhibition galleries in two immersive museum visitor experiences, a suite of temporary exhibition galleries, an underground courtyard with a café, shop and education centre, a digital library complex, and a suite of VIP reception facilities.
