THE AIM OF ART IS TO REPRESENT NOT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE OF THINGS, BUT THEIR INWARD SIGNIFICANCE.
Living in a drastic changing region where conflicts never stop and demands of life increase, created a gap between people and culture as an essential aspect in their lives which represents beauty, genuinely and humanity. Unfortunately, Art has either become exclusive to a certain crowd, seized and cuffed with rules or intimidating, many people miss the chance of exploring the beauty of art even if they want to.
Al Mahha Art is an online magazine for Middle Eastern visual art and culture, based abroad or in the region. It is a bridge between people interested in art and what is going in the art scene featuring: reviews, events, artists, news, art fairs, exclusive interviews, coverages, article… etc. In Al Mahha Art, we go beyond the artwork ‘s composition, understand its’ message as a mean of communication between the artist & society and make it approachable & understandable to readers from different backgrounds and ages.
Al Mahha is the Arabic meaning of of Oryx, a unique species famous for its’ beauty only lives in the Arabian Peninsula. Launched in November 2011 from one of the Gulf states, Al Mahha Art presents the most unique context. When it was first launched, Al Mahha was a blog, known as Al Mahha Art Blog. Over the years, Al Mahha evolved steady and gradually with strong connections with artists, curators, galleries, non profit entities, museums and art fairs.
Al Mahha Art is not only an informative website for emerging and established artists but also a platform for fresh and young voices on Middle Eastern visual art and culture, providing an equal opportunity for both emerging artists and creative writers to express themselves freely and independently in Al Mahha Art.
We all share somehow the same political, economical & social issues; but culture gives each society a different identity & flavor. Based on that, Al Mahha Art is a project dedicated to support art activities and artists, spread knowledge, create awareness to give everyone the chance to follow up with what they have been missing.
