Al Arabiya News Channel launched on Friday the first episode of its new series “Nawafeth” (Arabic for ‘Windows’) that features fine artists from the Arab World. It was the first of 100 episodes that will showcase profiles of the artists working in different art forms.
Characterized by the application of unique layers of colors, Thaer Hilal’s paintings mesmerized the public since 1995 in numerous exhibitions.
His work was exhibited in the Asian Art Biennale in Bangladesh, the Sharjah museum, the Art Dubai and the Sharjah Third Biennale where he received the Golden Grand Award.
Born in the city of al-Nasseriya in 1967, he graduated from Visual Communication at the School of Fine Arts in the Syrian capital Damascus.
“It is a lovely village tinged with the colors of ever season just like my paintings,” said Hilal when speaking about his hometown.
Having obtained his degree, Hilal moved to live and work in Dubai.
“It was a new stage brimming with hard work, research and productivity,” he said.
Passion and perseverance took him to new heights in the arena of art. With his unique painting techniques which left an indelible impression in solo and group art exhibitions, art gurus concede that his artistic talent is a force to be reckoned with.
“Though I embody the pace of people, I am just a bystander who imparts everything around me to my paintings,” Hilal said.
