Yemen: Art and Talent

Among the many news about Yemen and the many misconceptions about it, many seem to overlook the true beauty of Yemen and the talent of many Yemenis. I am an art lover and besides being an amateur painter, both my husband and I appreciate and collect artworks. We collected many paintings during our travels and some are by Yemeni artists. I wrote this post to share with you the beauty of some of the Yemeni artwork from our private collection:

These are some of the paintings by Yemeni artist  Fouad Al-Foutaih: 

 These are some of the paintings by Yemeni artist Mazher Nizar:

To see the work of these two talented artists visit  Bab Al-Yemen Gallery situated in the historical main gate of the old city of Sana'a and the Atelier Gallery in the same area, which also exhibits works of many other artists.
