THE Cultural Village Foundation (Katara) honoured the artists and supervisors who participated in the second edition of 'Katara Murals with the Brushes of Artists' project, at a grand event held at Katara's Wisdom Square on Wednesday.
The ceremony was held in the presence of General Manager of Katara Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim al Sulaiti, dignitaries, artists and media personnel.
Throughout the project, artists were asked to paint and script a meaningful form of art inspired by Qatar's legacy and Katara's identity. Innovative painters used diverse artistic techniques to overcome the impact of rains on their spectacular murals on Katara's walls. The event was held from February 5 until February 28.
The second edition of the project was held under the supervision of the Public Relations and Communications Manager at Katara and Project Manager Malika al Sherim.
The project attracted 51 artists representing 17 nations.
The wide range of participants from Qatar showcased diverse backgrounds in fine-arts. The project mirrored the popularity of the art form, and artists were seen to immerse themselves in the task of producing a painting on a three by four metre/feet platform.
Among the artists who participated were the Ambassador of Austria to Qatar HE Willy Kempel and Qatari artists Mariam Ahmad al Mulla, Ahmad Nooh al Zayed, Eman Abdulah al Haidos, Haifa al Sada, Fatima Mohamed al Naeimi and Fahad al Maadad.
The ceremony kicked off with a short documentary that portrayed images of the various phases that the artists went through to complete the murals safely.
Speaking on the occasion, Sulaiti said,"We welcome you today at Katara where creativity and beauty meet, stressing on the fact that arts and culture are an ideal way of building communication bridges between people from all walks of life."
"These artists came from diverse fine-art schools and they translated their visions of Katara and Qatar into the murals. By the end of the event, 107 paintings adorned Katara's walls, spreading the message that art is a common language between people from different civilisations."
Katara's General Manager also extended his genuine appreciation and gratitude to all artists who participated in Katara's Murals with the Brushes of Artist's project, wishing them the very best in their future chosen paths.
Following the speech, the Katara's chief awarded participating artists with souvenirs, elegant minimised versions of their painted murals, and booklets of the event containing information about each painter and their finished murals. Supervisors and families of the artists were also felicitated at the event.
