Declaration

Artist statement

Declaration

Originally created in 2013, Declaration was my first sculptural work. It carried a message of love for his art and calligraphy. The words were taken from a poem by Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani. After it was destroyed, I recreated it in 2018 for a commission by the Dubai Opera House to make his love declaration permanent. The sculpture stands in front of the Dubai Opera House today and carries the words of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoum, ‘Art in all its colours and types reflects the culture of the nations, their history and civilisation.’
