Our Vision:

We believe that fine art has an important and active role in promoting human values and we

consider it as an essential activity to generate communication between nations through the

exchange of views, cultures, information and knowledge. Fine art creates dialogue that has an

important role in breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles. People started drawing before

speaking, and the drawing became the medium of understanding and interacting.
