Rawia Zantout’s painting is titled “The Eye of the Storm.” It is painted with ten layers of acrylic paint.
Here’s the description: “The world of turbulence, confusion, disorder, unrest we are surrounded by. Aren’t we all directly involved in this tumultuous situation. The eye, the center, the calmest section of any hurricane. The eye is calm because the strong surface winds that converge towards the center never reached it. I am safe; I am in control. Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm.”
According to her biography, Rawia finds her inspiration in the works of prominent impressionist painters such as Monet, Renoir, Degas, Pissarro and Manet and many other artists who lived and worked in the south of France where she lived and studied.
The event will be held on November 21 at the FIVE hotel Jumeirah Palm in Dubai. Vote for Rawia here!
