The “Fine Arabic Calligraphy” virtual exhibition by the Cultural Village Foundation features stunning artwork by six Turkish artists, and will stay open to the public till December 13.
Art, beauty, and creativity— all are evident in Katara’s latest virtual exhibition “Fine Arabic Calligraphy,” which features pieces by six talented Turkish artists.
The exhibition, which aims to portray Islamic and Arab culture art that has long been known for its uniqueness and value, was opened in partnership with the Turkish cultural centre, Yunus Emre in Doha.
‘Virtual’ doors will open on the website from September 13 until the end of December, from 8am to 10pm daily.
Showing a blend of golden colours and explicit details, the pieces were carefully painted by distinguished artists, including Hussein Oksuz, Sami Naddah, Abdurrahman Depeler, Seyit Ahmet Depeler, Abdurrahim Kahya and Sarqan Sail Al-Maz, and highlight the different styles Arabic calligraphy presents.
The pieces, depicted in a way that even non-Arabic speakers can admire, provide visitors a unique look into the beauty of classical Arabic scripts – such Thuluth, Kufi, and Diwani – as a contemporary art form.
“Fine Arabic Calligraphy” is Katara’s 10th virtual exhibition, which comes as part of its initiative to showcase artwork for art lovers in the country from the comfort of their homes, in a bid to bypass the restrictions imposed by COVID-19.
The unique exhibition comes after “Portraits,” which featured 29 works by seasoned Qatari portrait artist Eman Al Sulaiti.
Currently, there are various exhibitions being showcased by Katara, including “Patches” “Femmes à la mode” and “Trace” – all of which can be accessed through Katara’s website until the end of the year.
