The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque extends a warm invitation to enter a captivating and beautiful world. It is adorned with a myriad of textures, intriguing calligraphy, and endless motifs on tiles. Throughout the mosque, there are hidden spaces where visitors can sit, admire, and immerse themselves in the sights and sensations. Although this place is unlike anything I have experienced before, I have come to realize that some things remain universal across the world.
The tender care a mother shows for her child is one such universal aspect that resonates deeply regardless of cultural differences. Another familiar observation, which appears coincidentally in some of my other paintings, is people’s obsession with their mobile phones. It seems to be a recurring theme, highlighting the omnipresence of technology in today’s society.
