MUSCAT DAILY about "Show Your World" and Gailani Ibrahim, one of the winners and current juror at RE:ARTISTE International Art Organization:
Gailani is the first ever artist from Oman and the GCC to win this award. The event celebrated all genres of art and invited artists to interpret the theme of ‘showing your world’.
The Refugee is inspired by the turmoil in Syria where people are fleeing their country and being forced to seek refuge - sometimes illegally - in other lands.
“Art is a reflection of life and as artists our job is to showcase the reality of lives. It is a hard time in Syria now where people are talking of human lives in mere numbers. We are on the verge of losing our sensitivities. I hope that my piece of work will bring that sensitivity back once again,” said Gailani. Besides the award, the artist has won the honour of judging the next edition of art event this December.
