DUBAI – A portrait of Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, which was created using more than 9,000 fingerprints, has attracted thousands of visitors to the Village of Roses at Taif Season.
Saudi artist Talal Al-Abbasi expressed his joy and pride in the portrait, which he considers his favourite and most important creation.
Al-Abbasi wanted to show a new concept and get art lovers to participate in its creation by using fingerprints taken from visitors of Village of Roses. The youngest visitor with a fingerprint featured in the portrait is a five-month-old baby.
The portrait was created on Art Street in the Village of Roses in five days. Al Abbasi worked an average of four hours a day to complete the portrait.
The portrait was one of many attractions on Art Street, where more than 200 Saudi artists participated in creating fine artworks, and photographic, digital and interactive items. ICA/Expat Media
