Friends Cultural Centre (FCC) in collaboration with Shantiniketan Indian School (SIS) held a water colour painting exhibition on May 19 at FCC Hall in Hilal. The exhibition was inaugurated by a prominent artist in Qatar Hassan Abdul Rehman Al Mulla.
The paintings exhibited are from the collection of Doha artist Noufal KV who is also an art teacher at SIS. Hailing from Kerala, India, Noufal KV claims to have proficiency in art and painting since the last 15 years. He says that he has received immense support from the management of SIS for this venture, adding, “I draw ideas to draw from my imagination and all the beautiful things from my surroundings.”
He had spent all his childhood in kerala and is currently working as an art teacher in SIS. The paintings reveal a connection between his life in Qatar and his life in kerala. He uses this link between two dissimilar places to create captivating pictures. In one of the portrayals, he made use of animals to depict the chaos in a battlefield. His artworks are a reflection of everything that he has seen, felt and experienced all throughout his life.
SIS Principal Subhash B Nair, SIS President KC Abdul Latheef, FCC Chairman PP Abdul Rehman, and Qatar Charity program manager Fareed Khalil Siddiqi were also present at the inauguration
