Arab Times

contemporary middle eastern art

By Boie Conrad Dublin

The paintings are at once beautiful and mysterious, the depicting scenes of ancient Mesopotamia and other Arabian imagery, all seemingly enveloped in a misty haze just like in a dream.

The works reflect a journey, a visual voyage of impressions from many years of traveling coupled by a passion for learning by the artist, about the the archaeology and architecture of Mesopotamia and the region in general.

"Vian Sora: Voyage Into Arabia" and exhibition by the Aspen, of over thirty painting done in mixed medium on canvas depicting scenes of old Mesopotamia, opened Sunday at the Dar El Cid Exhibition Halls in Jabriya. The exhibition will run until Wednesday, November 15, 2006.
