Katara hosts Tunisian artists works on natural beauty
Tribune News Network | Doha

KATARA, the Cultural Village Foundation, hosted a solo exhibition of Tunisian artist Malik Hamza Saeed titled Plants throughout ages decorating palaces.

The exhibition displayed a number of paintings and art pieces reflecting the fresh greenness of nature, in addition to wooden sculpture and carvings of birds, animals and other artistic forms.

Following a tour of the exhibition, Katara General Manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al Sulaiti said, This is a first of its kind exhibition to be hosted in Qatar and Katara as it includes art masterpieces that show the creativity of the artist as he uses materials from our environment to send a powerful green message regarding the importance of preserving the ecological system in our world.

It also celebrates, through artistic work, the beauty of our Qatari environment.

Speaking about the exhibition, Malik Hamza said, This exhibition is perceived as an opportunity to raise public awareness on how people in the community can add a touch of art and beauty to their homes by using natural components and materials as a decorative style in their palaces and apartments.

All my works here are made of natural materials and objects, including dried plants, but with new techniques that give life and a natural effect to the plants used.

He added, I regard both my painting Horizon, which portrays the surface of Doha in a horizontal line with a vast green background, and another painting inspired from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in ancient Iraq to be the most important paintings of this exhibition.

There are several wooden sculpture and carvings that have attracted the attention of visitors.

It took me three months to prepare for this debut and I once again thank Katara for this amazing opportunity and for hosting my exhibition to create better public understanding of this kind of beautiful art.
