Muscat: 'The Colours of Oman', Greek artist Martina Kiko's latest artwork collection, inspired by Oman, is presented at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Muscat at the Maha Hall today from 7pm to 10:30pm. The exhibition is open to the public and admission is free.
Kiko said: "I see Oman as a fascinating collage and a magical kaleidoscope that can lead an artistic mind to find inspiration. I see colours hidden everywhere, in the mountains, landscapes with proportion that a western mind cannot imagine, intriguing sounds, the beautiful Arabic language, rich fragrances, the traditional costumes, beautiful people with delightful traditions and immense hospitality all colourful, all inspirational. I see amazing architectural details covering the mosques, sophisticated sculpture techniques used on the traditional ships and a multicultural society.
"I am gathering all those images, decoding them into artworks with my first exhibition in Oman, to bring to you, 'The Colours of Oman'."
