JEDDAH: Famous Saudi artist Nasir Al-Turki from Riyadh brought his solo art exhibition to the people of Jeddah at Al-Alamiah art gallery in Jeddah.
The exhibition carried the innovative theme of “Throne of Light,” featuring black and white shades and aiming to throw light on the different shades of life’s journey.
The 10-day solo exhibition started on Monday and is open to the public.
The artist in his paintings tried to show how people can fight life’s darkness, which resembles hardships and problems, with hope and faith as represented by white light.
“I gave the title ‘Throne of Light’ to my collection, which includes 21 paintings with different strokes of light and a combination of black and white shades, because I think white light means hope always wins over darkness. This is the message I want to give through my paintings, that we never lose hope and think about good things, because at the end the good will win over the bad if we have faith in Allah and ourselves,” he said.
He added the journey of his collection started in Riyadh at the beginning of 2011 and was an experiment.
