Born in Al Baha, Saudi Arabia in 1959, Mohammed Al Ghamdi recycles the refuse of

our changing society, shaping them into a new definition of value and beauty, fossilizing into eternity moments we thought obsolete. His experience with art long

precedes his engineering qualifications but drew on it with his knowledge of materials. Al Ghamdi participated in over 50 group exhibitions around Saudi Arabia, including: Saudi Center for Formative Arts since 1991, General Presidency of Youth Welfare

Exhibitions in Jeddah and Riyadh, Formation House Exhibitions from 1993 – 1998, Al

Janadriyah Cultural Festival in 2000, and in Atelier Jeddah. He also participated in numerous international exhibitions, including Cairo Biennale (2001), Saudi Cultural Week in Tehran (2002) and Nabat Exhibition in Shanghai (2010)

Al Ghamdi held 7 solo exhibitions in Jeddah between 1996 and 2009 at The Saudi Center and Atelier Jeddah. He is a recipient of many awards such as 2nd Prize in Al

Janadriyah Festival in Riyadh (2000) and First Prize in Drawing and Painting from Sharjah Biennale (2001).

When reality becomes an open spaced gallery, that suggests a deeper artistic insight and a creative intertwining. An invisible dialogue starts to form within the human being questioning what she/he sees and refining the text hosted in our senses. That is a

vow Mohammed Al-Ghamdi, the artist, lives by. Al-Ghamdi is the artist who lives within his fragmented tools, as a modern sculptor.

He sees no difference between a piece of a tissue and a full car’s body. He considers sawdust heavier than a strong tree’s trunk. There seems to be a division in the depth of things; and therefore, a desire to start a dialogue.

Al-Ghamdi started his artistic journey to solve the problematic mystery of space. He started getting closer to his surrounding objects by touching them and examining their quality. He was shocked as he discovered that within each object was a story long-lived. The diverse mediums opened the door for an excellent blend, homogeneous yet opposite despite its fading luster. The

artist had lived those paradoxes, and went to mold his artwork gracefully and professionally to revive the stories that almost faded away.

It’s not an isolation that an artist chooses, neither that it is a mysterious trait as some might think, but something is worthy for him to walk away from the noises and the lights. Al-Ghamdi stays away, often, in his continuous process of researching and creating.

His ideas are born from the depth of space and all that it holds of precious and ignored objects… That’s Al-Ghamdi’s story of absences, a story he does not have to explain to anyone. The relationship between the artist and his artwork is unbreakable and intimate. Al-Ghamdi’s artwork shows more than what the mediums used to convey, but a loud silence and an abundance in life.

Al-Ghamdi is a devoted artist in his art presence. Since he won the Sharjah Biennial Prize in 2001, his uniquely carved sculptures had a huge impact on the Saudi art scene.

Al-Ghamdi’s artwork reveals stories of the time, poetry, and sarcasm. His work opens to a space that is loaded with current concerns, and the longing to the sound of the past. Al-Ghamdi is still blending his different mediums to translate the issues of the time. Between the old ages and the modern days, Al-Ghamdi picks a sharp angle pointing at the heart of art and life.

Abstract Surrealist artist Mohammed Al-Ghamdi was born a poet, with painting and literature touching on his dreams since

childhood. Before Al-Ghamdis’s departed on his studies of Aerospace Engineering in Los Angeles, he spent many hours studying

books about European art history so that by the time he was in California, he was already well-versed in Western art aesthetics and theory. As a student, he frequented art galleries, exhibition openings and museums. Upon his return home in 1982, this exploration lived on through academic readings of art history and literature. By 1988 the first center, The Saudi Centre for Abstract Art, opened

in Saudi, and when in 1996 he found a group of artists in Bayt Al-Tashkeelyen, he had already formed a very strong and unique perspective towards art as a practice. Al-Ghamdi viewed art as a practice for self-discovery, understanding the world and communicating extra-ordinary emotion.

Al-Ghamdi is an incredibly versatile artist whose practice is influenced by personal, intellectual, emotional, poetic and spiritual experiences, reflecting his state of mind.

His writing of poetry describes nature through surrealist and supernatural depictions, incorporating chemistry, spirituality and

femininity through his poetic imagery and sculptural works. Not unlike our historic poets, Al-Ghamdi is influenced by his direct environment. Seasonal and ritualistic undertones capture his almost continuously existentialist mind-state.

In this retrospective, we learn about Al-Ghamdi as an artist through 80 works from the past 35 years. The experiential growth of his artistry is evident in the transformation and growth of his works. In Al-Ghamdi’s art, there are many emotional as well as intellectual gateways for viewers to connect to. Walk through his journey, his dreams and his thought process, seeing parts of that journey in his work.

works. This window into his visions was found when he made a box from a sculpture

and it couldn't fit. He then made a literal window for it in the box, and from there his current approach to was born. His work sometimes feel like scenes from an aerial view,

visions and dreams of flying interpreted with everyday items found around his city.

Other times you feel like there are people looking at you in his work, hidden faces and figures portrayed in his style. AlGhamdi's work is hard to put in a genre, just like himself.

Going back before AlGhamdi found himself in wood work, we find his experimental

phase with canvas, resin, found objects, and paint. In this phase AlGhamdi went deep into developing his practice and working with all medium. His artists' bible was a book about every single medium available and he worked with it all. Walking through each

piece, his dreamy surreal style still evident in his work. What is AlGhamdi actually thinking or feeling no one really knows, but it is easy to find yourself, your thoughts, your dreams in each one.

Fresh of his graduation from areospace engineering, you can see the purity of form in AlGhamdi's style. You can see the spark. The spark of excitement, of curiosity, of wanting to express. He expresses it by saying this is the way he opened the tap to his emotions. His watercolours are other worldly and whimsical. Each painting looks like a

vision of fantasy. Although his work is very planned, the result is an spontaneous. The beginnings of an artist are found here. Take your time exploring.
