The Boushahri Gallery was opened by the Kuwaiti sculptor Jawad Boushahri in Salmiya in 1982.
The Gallery expanded since moving to new quarters in 1993.

It was Mr. Boushahri’s desire to encourage local artists and create an awareness of fine arts in Kuwait.
The inaugural exhibition for the Gallery’s re-opening entitled Panorama of Modern Formative Art in Kuwait, included paintings, sculptures and ceramics of 47 Kuwaiti artists.

As one of the oldest private art galleries in the Middle Eastern region, Boushahri Gallery has opened multiple avenues for rising local and internationally acclaimed artists.
