Doha, – The Cultural Village Foundation-Katara inaugurated a precious gems and metals exhibition titled ‘Metals, Gems and Pearls Exhibition’.
The stunning exhibit consists of paintings by the artist, Patric Rozario, who hails from Malaysia. The display is made up of 30 intricately crafted works of art, each studded with Swarovski crystals, emeralds, rubies, pearls and other valuable stones. Each piece of work is a unique masterpiece that draws on inspiration from Qatari culture, such as: Dallah, the Camel and Arabic Calligraphy.
Describing his work, Rozario said, “My art-pieces are constantly evolving, becoming richer and more meaningful, as they are inspired by feedback and ideas from the buyers and the viewers. I prefer to create pieces that are dazzling, rich, glamorous, colorful, joyful and rare. My effort is to evoke happiness, and if possible, heal too. The pearl works that I have created are considered by many as my signature collection. In fact, I am so fascinated with pearls that I have spent a great deal of time studying and researching more about the precious stone.” The artist not only showcases his artworks in exhibitions, but also owns studios in London and Doha. He has also formed two companies, Aesthetic Arts Ltd in the United Kingdom and Aesthetic Arts Design of Qatar, with the aim of promoting his artistic pieces.
The works on display are bespoke metal coverings conceived and created to tastefully decorate interiors and to rewrite the concept of sophisticated living. These panels glow in brilliant designs and colors but are versatile, and are guaranteed to meet the requirements of the most selective and demanding interior designers, fit-out consultants and architects. Most professional designers and decorators are impressed by Rozario’s paintings that are not just stunning to behold, but also offer practical yet elegant solutions for working, living and entertaining environments.
Rozario’s exclusive production process includes hand painting on metal composite panels or solid metal, which are then embedded with natural pearls, Swarovski crystals, precious gems, semi-precious stones and crystals. These are then time-dried and finally hand coated with special water resistant epoxy resin (which has no odor and no volatile organic compounds), resulting in an elegant and unique form of art.
Rozario’s creations are particularly coveted as each work is unique and bespoke, with no panels identical to each other. (QNA)
