Neighbours of the Sea Exhibition at Doha Fire Station

5 June @ 9:00 am - 17 August @ 7:00 pm

The artist’s imagination and inner world are closely linked to their environment, society, and heritage, as the artistic experience reflects the manifestation of this deep relationship mixed with the creative’s feelings and their interaction with these elements, with them being at the centre of it.

This exhibition presents the vision of artists Wafika Sultan Al-Issa and Hassan Al-Mulla, who are considered among the pioneers of fine art in Qatar. “Neighbours of the Sea” presents an intersection area for the artists despite the difference in the method of expression and artistic style, where the local environment and culture constitute a meeting point and a common inspiration for both.

Qatari people have always been influenced by the desert and their proximity to the sea at the same time, and living in this unique environment has always had repercussions on the way of life, culture, urbanism, and popular heritage, and the series of works displayed represent this reflection on the artists as they are part of this society, its culture, and its land. The exhibition presents more than 30 mixed-media paintings, some of which were created by the artists during their residency at the Fire Station Ruwad in Residence (2021-2023).
