GREETINGS TO FERNANDO BOTERO AN EXHIBITION BY MOHAMMED AL MAHDI
Albareh Art Gallery is participating in the Spring of Culture 2020 with Greetings to Fernando Botero, a solo exhibition of the works of Bahraini artist, Mohammed Al Mahdi. The show opens with a reception at the gallery at 7pm on February 18. The artist explains: “My last tenure as a life-drawing artist was in 2000. After which, I began the search for my identity through painting. I researched a lot of experiences and artistic trends. In 2005 I arrived at a crossroads between the influence of artist Fernando Botero and that of childhood-like art. I chose to focus on the latter which I pursued. “In this exhibition I try to go back in time to the teacher who appeared late. To Botero who found beauty in full bodies and the one who invaded the world with his huge sculptures. He showed me how to be an artist that stays true to his environment and to reflect his surrounding reality. I don’t mind leaving the familiar or norm for a period of time just to satisfy his insistent desire. In one instant I mimic Botero’s style on my topics and in another I use his style of painting and subjects completely. Through this exhibition, I bid a tribute of respect and appreciation for this artist’s great stature.” Call 17 717-707 or email email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org. www.bahrainthismonth.com/events
