Abdullah Al Muharraqi

30 April - 12 June 2008

Abdulla Al Muharraqi is recognized as being the founding father of modern Arab art in the Gulf. Born in Bahrain, his work is held in the highest esteem by the leading collectors throughout the GCC.  His work embodies the Arabian Peninsula like no other - chronicling the movement in time from yesterday to today. His paintings exhibit a level of raw emotion not exhibited by any other artist from the Gulf. He believes his paintings tell you more than words ever could. Qatar has honoured Abdulla Al Muharraqi with a hall devoted to his work in the Museum of Modern Arabic Art. He is the only Arab artist to recieve such an honour.
