Dubai, United Arab Emirates - September 01, 2019: Saudi artist Reem Alsubiy and her mother Dahana Salem will come together to pay tribute to the UAE at the Year of Tolerance Art Exhibition by 2XL Furniture & Home Décor. The duo will convey the message of peace and hope alongside 100 leading and emerging, local and international artists, with their unique paintings being displayed at the show from 11th to 14th September at the 2XL store on Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah.
Amit Yadav, Head of Marketing, 2XL Furniture & Home Décor, said, “Art is one of the most universal and powerful languages that transcends boundaries and cultures and we are very excited to see so many diverse styles and nationalities united by the theme of tolerance. Both Reem Alsubiy and Dahana Salem are exceptional artists and we are very proud to have them in our show.”
Talking about the inspiration behind her striking works, Reem stressed, “We all know that love and understanding are the most important and powerful aspects of communication. From the beginning of time, the human race witnessed war and hatred in many forms, as much as it had its share of love and peace. The fact that humans have been faced by the same problem can't be ignored, yet there will always be hunger and desire for peace.”
Reem continued, “The ladies in my paintings are caring and different kinds of species. While some of them are stronger, others are weaker, yet both co-exist. Therefore, in my theme I'm focusing on the idea (that differences between creatures wouldn't be an obstacle for them to live peacefully, only if they were raised in peace). My duty as an artist is to stand strong holding the message of peace, delivering peace from my heart to other people's hearts. I believe that whatever comes from the heart will always find its way to hearts.”
The subjects in Dahana works are equally bold and meaningful. She said, “Hope, love, peace and understanding are key to build a strong and beautiful future for the human race. I believe that art has the power to deliver any message and what makes my paintings unique is their ability to connect with people and touch their soul.”
