Gallery Design hosts ‘Italy in the Eyes of Arab Artists’ show
Gallery Design and Italian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Luca Ferrari celebrated recently the opening of their collaborative exhibition “Italy in the Eyes of Arab Artists.”
The Riyadh exhibition was part of the World Italian Language Week. It featured Saudi and Arab artists such as Ali Ruzaiza, Othman Khuzaim, Yehya Bajunaid, Najlaa M. Al-Saleem, Talal Al-Zeid, Rama Maz and Abdulelah Alkhayyal.
The designers were an eclectic mix of both new and veteran talent from the Kingdom, who studied in Italy and showcased their unique perspective through art. The “East meets West” initiative has allowed Arab artists the unique experience of Italy, while staying true to their cultural values. “This sentiment is mirrored in the design ethos of Gallery Design, which aims to address the globalized taste and lifestyles in the region by providing a distinct blend of contemporary furniture, as well as adhering to international design standards,” Gallery Design said in a statement.
