A unique public art exhibition opened yesterday at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) park featuring over 40 Tamim Al Majd murals in varying shapes and sizes donated by individuals and families across the country.
The collection depicts the iconic monochrome artwork originally created by young Qatari artist Ahmed bin Majed Almaadheed which has become a ubiquitous sight in Qatar during a significant moment in the country’s recent history.
Titled ‘Tamim Al Majd: Celebration of Unity’, the exhibition reinforces the rallying spirit that has swept Qatar in recent weeks. The artworks bear the same image of H H Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani but differ in the messages written on them in various languages by people across all nationalities expressing their love and support to the country’s leadership.
