Local Qatari artist Sara Khalid Al Hail explains her passion for art started around the same time the festival started, which offered her an ideal platform to showcase her artwork.

However, visual art in Qatar is wider than indoor spaces. There are many painted murals on display across Doha. This type of public art has changed through initiatives like World Wide Walls. Its founder, Jasper Wong, told Aadel Haleem about the impact this type of art has on urban spaces and how the public’s perception has positively evolved over the years.

Laila Humariah found out why art is considered a mirror of the mind and is increasingly used as a healing tool and a form of therapy. Colours and creativity can help express emotions where words can fail.

Hala Aljaafari is one of 30 artists who displayed their work at the Qatar Foundation’s Artful Minds exhibition. She encourages everyone to hold a brush and try some art to feel immediate relief.

Whether on display in public areas or set up in global events, Qatar’s visual arts scene will embellish everyone’s daily life 365 days a year.
