True to the spirit of Galeries Lafayette and incorporating the element of art in a retail ambience, Galeries Lafayette Doha is currently hosting local artist Fahad Al-Maadheed’s brand-new exhibition.

On the ground floor of the retail outlet, you can find an art exhibition corner with Al-Maadheed’s magnificent paintings. The three-week-long exhibition will run until June 22 and is a perfect opportunity to witness the exquisite art of this local talent.

The exhibition also includes a live painting station for the artist where he will be available to paint on leather goods such as handbags, wallets and phone covers. Customisations on each product take approximately two to five weeks to complete.

Al-Maadheed is a self-taught artist and his love for art started early in life. The interesting thing is that he has learnt everything he knows from various online resources. After extensive hard work and determination, he is now renowned all over the Gulf region and his artwork represents Qatar on a global level.

Al-Madheed has been a part of many prominent exhibitions and workshops in different parts of the region. Apart from his personal exhibitions, which have been highly acclaimed by international art lovers, Al-Maadheed has also been a part of prominent cultural activities such as painting the walls of Katara Cultural Village and events held during the Qatar National Day celebrations.

All the artwork is characterised by fascinating colours and patterns. These are literally horses of a different colour and we honestly can’t decide which one we love most. The best part about checking out this exhibition, you ask? You get to explore the incredible Galeries Lafayette after, of course.
Free. Open Sat-Wed 10am-10pm; Thu 10am-midnight; Fri 1.30pm-midnight. Galeries Lafayette, 21 High St, Katara Cultural Village (no number).
