Inaugurated on Sunday evening, the exhibition displayed 47 works, depicting faces and nature.

“The displayed works are a product of the last three years. My works are dear to me. I feel close to each and every one of them. However, I am displaying and selling them with the aim of giving an opportunity to the maximum possible number of art lovers to possess my works,” he noted, adding: “The artist’s way of expressing his vision about and mission in life is through art. In addition, I need to distribute my art works after a period to be able to start another new, innovative phase.”

Abu Ajram, who is a professor at the Art College of the Lebanese University in Beirut, started drawing in his childhood.

Recalling those days, he said he used to draw on the walls and sing underneath them with an announcement about an art gallery. He refined and enhanced his talent as he became an artist.

“I was inspired by nature around me and possessed by an ambition to be a painter. After finishing school, I joined an art college and pursued higher studies in France,” he said.

He has held about 18 personal exhibitions and 70 other collaborative ones in different countries, including the UAE, England, France, and Lebanon.

The price of the works, which depict different scenes from nature, horses, and human faces range between Dh1, 000 and Dh8, 000.
