Qatari and expatriate artists from different art backgrounds have been expressing their love for the country and stress their loyalty to His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani through artworks as part of a three-day event at Gulf Mall.

The event has attracted the crowds to witness moments of creativity as the artists produce works that document the current times and show how everyone is coming together behind the wise leadership of His Highness the Emir. Speaking to QNA, poet and artist Radi al-Hajri said the event aimed to express "joy through an actual interpretation of belonging to the homeland and love for His Highness the Emir."

He added that the event was started through the personal initiative of artists and backed by government entities, including the Ministry of Culture and Sports, which decided to set up a gallery for the nearly 20 artworks. Qatar Tourism Authority also supported the event.

Fine artist Mariam al-Mulla said her artwork, which is part of the gallery, expresses the Qatari people's love for their country, adding that the use of pure gold leaves is indicative of the sacrifices that Qataris are willing to make for the homeland and His Highness the Emir.

Meanwhile, artist Sheikha al-Kuwari painted a drawing for HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser and said the painting is an expression of her love, adding that it features a dove to show the peace she has in her heart for the world as a gift from a Qatari artist. A Thai artist participated with a painting on Doha skyscrapers with cars bearing slogans supporting His Highness the Emir. He said he wanted to show Doha's beauty, especially the Al Dafna area.

An Indian artist drew a colour painting for His Highness the Emir, saying it is an expression of his love for Qatar. A fellow Indian artist said she participated with an artwork about a Qatari knight carrying the flag as if he is "conquering difficulties to reach the path of glory".

Sudanese artist Fatima Ibrahim, a student at a Sudanese school, participated in the event with a monochrome painting for His Highness the Emir, saying it expresses "the love and appreciation of the Sudanese people for the State of Qatar and its leadership" and shows "solidarity against the unjust siege by some countries".
