“Oriental Color” exhibition depicts charming nature, heritage and life in coastal areas

Lattakia, SANA – The National Museum in Lattakia is currently hosting activities of the Young Engineers Exhibition under the title “Oriental Color”.

105 creative artistic works varying between plastic and Arabic Calligraphy paintings, handicrafts and wooden sculptures sprinkled throughout the Museum’s lobby and hallways.

Participating with 42 oil and water paintings, engineer Rami Ismael noted that he was inspired by the charming nature of the rural areas on the Syrian coast.

“I sought through my works to provide insight into the heritage, local traditions and marine life on the Syrian Coast,” he said.

Engineer Amal Mer’ashli’s participation included three Arabic calligraphy paintings and two wooden sculptures through which she hoped she has been able to give a realistic picture of Lattakia city and highlight its historical importance.


Yamen Mer’ashli, who is participating with 14 paintings depicting nature, people and neighborhoods, said the exhibition underlined the popularity of Syrian art and the ability of Syrians to innovate despite the current difficulties facing them under the terrorist war waged against their country.

Other participants indicated that the organization of this exhibition stresses the strong will and determination of the Syrian people to go ahead with their lives despite all circumstances and aims at providing an outlet from the ongoing crisis.

The Young Engineers Exhibition was organized by the Ministry of Culture in cooperation with the General Directorate of Archeology and Museums with the participation of a group of artist engineers.
