Tihama shows off its brightnes
Titled Ishraqaat from Tihama, which translates as “Brightness from Tihama,” the show features 14 artists and showed off a wide range of painting techniques, including water, oil and acrylic paints, glass art and graphics.
Shefa’a Mohammed Al-Shaibi told the Yemen Times, “The exhibition explains the simplicity and purity of Tihama and the brightness of Tihama even though there is suffering there.”
The collection of around 60 paintings attracted many visitors to the exhibition, which will run for a further three days.
Hend Al-Shaqa’a presented her work at the exhibition. “I’m so glad to share some ideas through my paintings and express the bright feeling from Tihama,” she said.
“Many people who attended asked me to explain my point view in the paintings and that’s a good sign that our people care about art.”
Saeed Al-Shaibi, another artists, said “It’s motivating when I see people react and encourage us. I have a strange painting style that is related to the freedom of thinking and improving your mind, and most of youth like it.”
