Fann A Porter Amman is pleased to present Watermelon Peace, the latest exhibition by celebrated painter Majd Kurdieh from 11 October – 10 November 2021 at Manara Arts & Culture in Amman, Jordan.
In this latest collection represented under Watermelon Peace, Majd Kurdieh strongly acknowledges humanity’s increasing turmoil and restlessness and counteracts with portrayals of unwavering love, belief and discovery of inner peace.
Unsurprisingly, the paintings burst with light and colour, offering up an aesthetic as passionate as the topic itself. Since the introduction of The Scary Butterfly Gang and its characters in 2014, and through all his various exhibitions, Kurdieh is masterful in his ability to express our realities through the strokes of his brush and the power of his words.
It is perhaps the visual innocence of the works represented in his collection, coupled with the power of prose and poetry, that deem his work so poignant. As noted by Kurdieh, his art and its characters are of this world, not merely a fantasy. If you care to look deeply enough, he offers a portal to a place of hope and togetherness should you wish to experience it.
