Qatari artists have thanked the Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar for the opportunity to display their works. Fatima al-Sharshani, while attending the tree planting event at Post Office Plaza, said she is grateful to the committee.
“It is also my pride and honour to have my artwork placed for public viewing beside a busy street in the diplomatic area," she noted.
Maryam al-Maadhadi said the artists hope to see more such initiatives and are much honoured to be part of beautifying the streets and areas across Qatar. Mohammad al-Atiq al-Dosari, a fine artist, has crafted a bronze sculpture depicting the seed of Gum Arabic Tree in the Post Office Plaza. The artwork symbolises human goodwill that grows and transforms through generations, he explained.
Jedariart was launched by Qatar Museums’ (QM) in November 2020 as an initiative to add meaning to the city’s walls through curated murals and street art. Jedariart, held in partnership with The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places, Q-Rail, and Woqod and Fire Station: Artist in Residence, has 18 Qatar-based artists to breathe new life into walls in various locations across the city with murals that shine a light on a variety of topics and spark constructive debate.
