The organisers describe the exhibition as a tribute to the power of faces, and an invitation to explore the beauty and complexity of the human experience, noting that each painting is a visual representation of the unique features, emotions and stories that make up a person's face.
Bu Matar expressed his gratitude to HE the Minister of Culture for opening the exhibition and for supporting all forms of art, the mirror that reflects the civilised features of Qatar.
He said that the exhibition reflects his passion for drawing faces, which he chose since the beginning of his career.
Portrait is one of the most difficult types of drawing because it requires gathering lots of feelings and diligence. (QNA)
