Today, the Cultural Village Foundation unveiled a mural entitled: ‘Challenge’ to commemorate the late Qatari artist Yousef Al Sada at Building 39.

The artwork consists of more than one million mosaic art pieces which decorate the walls at the entrance of Katara. The large-scale artwork was created by the mosaic technique to enlarge the original painting.

Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, General Manager of Katara, said that this painting was selected for its lovely pattern, it’s synonymity with Katara’s theme, and because Katara always does it’s best to support local artists.
