Traditional Art of the Past

We recently viewed the art of Syrian Artist Mohsen Khanji at Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotels & Resorts and were transported into the past conjuring memories of art and Ramadan of the past.

Sulty Events & Entertainment launched the new series of the Art Perspective exhibition ‘Whispers from the Past’ for the Ramadan season at the ‘Le Patio’ in Habtoor Palace Dubai, LXR Hotels & Resorts, a palatial retreat in the heart of Dubai in collaboration with Zimzy Gallery.

‘Whispers from the Past’ features art pieces created by Philosopher Mohsen Khanji who was born in Aleppo in 1950.  He uses traditional colours, textures and imaginative designs and techniques that bring the Arabic letters and the subjects to life. His unique pieces showcase Arabic decoration, engraving on metals and three-dimensional painting.

Vanessa de Caires, Owner of Sulty Events & Entertainment Dubai said: “We selected the works of Mohsen Kanji, a member of the Fine Arts Union in Syria as it exemplifies the art of the Arab world and is in synergy with the mood of the Ramadan season encompassing colors, tones and calligraphy that our patrons search for during the holy month.”

Art lovers and guests come to Le Patio to appreciate art in a modern and versatile venue that complements the creative scene of the city with its architectural surroundings. 

According to Ahmed Tayeh, Owner of the new Zimzy Gallery, Khanji’s work has been appreciated and showcased in museums and galleries in various cities including Aleppo, Damascus, Jeddah, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Tripoli and Dubai and continues to enthrall audiences from all aspects of life.  Zimzy gallery will officially be open on May 15, 2019.

A brainchild of Sulty Events & Entertainment and the late Regina Sio, Art Perspective celebrates the work of established and new artists. The art selected in this initiative are ideal as masterpieces in art galleries and private Collectors residences.

Diplomats, Art Collectors, regional Business leaders and media attend the opening night and visit the exhibition during the period of display.

We look forward to the next collection curated by Sulty events as their series have become a key highlight in the art calendar of Dubai.
