Saudi fine artist Mohammed al-Ablan has taken traditional Arabic calligraphy to a different artistic and colorful level.
The Saudi artist launched his first exhibition under the slogan “Within Reach.” The choice of the title was inspired by his conviction that hiding color as a drawing technique was an obtainable approach.
“I made an endeavor to veil the color and its impact completely,” said Ablan.
Born in Diriyah, Ablan holds a diploma in art education. He has participated in most of the Kingdom’s internal and external exhibitions, receiving several awards of appreciation. One of his works is displayed at the King Fahd International Airport in the Eastern Province. Ablan is one of the founders of the Saudi Society of Fine Arts as well as the colors group of Fine Arts.
He started painting in his youth, and after amassing experience in painting for ten long years, Ablan joined the Fine Arts Association. From there he embarked on launching his art exhibitions.
Pastes, ropes, canvas and remains of second-hand film were but a few materials which Ablan used in his innovative techniques.
“I don’t mind adding any material if it would serve the purpose of my painting,” said Ablan.
Subject to his artistic criteria, Ablan has casually used Arabic calligraphy in his paintings. In his view, it is an essential element which could impart a further dimension to his artistic works.
“All my paintings are inspired by a concept,” said Ablan.
