True to the spirit of Galeries Lafayette, and incorporating the element of art in a retail ambience, Galeries Lafayette Doha once again hosted an art exhibition for a local artist – and this time it was Fahad Al Maadheed.
His magnificent paintings are displayed at the art exhibition corner inside Galeries Lafayette Doha, ground floor. The three-week-long exhibition will run till June 22 and is a perfect opportunity to witness the exquisite art of this local talent.
The exhibition also includes a live painting station for the artist where he will be available to paint on leather goods such as handbags, wallets and phone covers. Customizations on each product take approximately 2-5 weeks to be finished.
Speaking about his art, the young artist said: “My art is my passion and I am glad to be able to be able to share it with the discerning clientele of Galeries Lafayette Doha. It is indeed a pleasure to be a part of this multi-dimensional department store that promotes and patronizes art and culture.”
General Manager of Galeries Lafayette Doha Mr. David Miller added: “Art and culture is in our DNA and we take special interest in the works of our incredible local artists. We are proud to showcase the magical brushstrokes of Fahad Al Maadheed on our premises.”
Al-Maadheed’s love for art started early in life and he is a self-taught artist, having learnt everything he knows about his art from various online resources. Today, he is well-known all over the Gulf region for his art and represents Qatar at the global level.
Al-Madheed has been a part of many prominent exhibitions and workshops in different parts of the Arab World. Apart from his personal exhibitions, which have been acclaimed by art lovers, Al-Maadheed has also been a part of prominent cultural activities such as painting the walls of Katara - the Cultural Village in Doha and events held during the Qatar National Day celebrations.
