KUWAIT: Some 64 Kuwaiti painters and sculptors are showcasing their works amid the locally-renowned summer cultural festival, praised as the ‘most important’ on the arts calendar. Al-Funoon and Ahmad Al-Adwani exhibition halls at the Kuwait City suburb of Abdullah Al-Salem are hosting a whopping 104 works by artists of all ages.
Commenting on the event, National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters chief Kamel Al-Abduljalil said the annual event is regarded the “most important of its kind on the domestic arts scene as it sheds light on up and coming talent.” One of the paintings on display, ‘Until When’ by Abdulrahman Al-Hamili, questions man’s continuing pursuit of war.
A journey into the calmness of nature is expressed in two works by aspiring artist, Norah Al-Hajeri. The young artist said she was thankful for the opportunity presented to her to parade her efforts at the much-celebrated occasion. – KUNA
