Zayed… Words of Gold
Why Khaled chose this subject for his last solo exhibition in UAE ? Khaled is living in UAE from 2005 until now, he love UAE, he love every detail in UAE, arts, people, nature, sea, elegance, the top modern development in everything. All these and more were inspiring him to thank the founder of everything in UAE Shaikh Zayed “May God have mercy on him” so Khaled collected some of his quotes in several sides and made them artworks mixed with all of his love and respect to that founder Shaikh Zayed. He used oil colors on canvas in general with gold color for the quote itself to reflect the value of the meaning of the quotes, he has focused also on the philosophy of the backgrounds of each artwork based on it's subject, some of them reflecting the strength of the believe and other reflecting like Traditions and Heritage colors.
