Doha Rolls-Royce dealer holds art workshop
Doha, April 20, 2011
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, the exclusive dealer for Rolls-Royce cars in Qatar and part of Alfardan Group, has teamed up with a leading fine art institution in Doha to launch a series of Rolls-Royce themed experience workshops.
Held recently at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha showroom at The Pearl - Qatar, Fine Art Inspirations by Rolls-Royce showcased the skills of students from the Virginia Common Wealth University’s Art Foundation and Fashion Design Faculty through live sketching workshops that drew inspiration from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Joseph Tayyar, brand manager for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha presented the students with three themes inspired by the world’s pinnacle automotive brand to be expressed in their sketches: The Power of Simplicity; The Spirit of Ecstasy – the flying lady that has gracefully adorned all Rolls-Royce models since 1911; and Impressions of Luxury inspired by Arabian Hues.
Mohammed Kandeel, general manager of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha, said: “We believe innovation is a vital part of business success and take great pleasure in encouraging creativity in the world of fine art.”
“Rolls-Royce is an iconic yet contemporary brand so collaborating with the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Art Foundation and Fashion Design Faculty for Fine Art Inspirations by Rolls-Royce, an event that specifically supports emerging artistic talent, was a natural synergy for us,” he added.
The resulting artworks will be exhibited at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha showroom at The Pearl – Qatar from April 19 for one week, a statement said.
“We expect the exhibition to generate a lot of local and regional interest which will further highlight the importance of partnerships between art institutions and the business world. To give emerging artists this opportunity is also a bonus for Qatar‘s creative industries and demonstrates how this country is a catalyst for business, creativity and learning” added Kandeel. – TradeArabia News Service
