Mattar Bin Lahej- UAE
Mattar Bin Lahej is a second-generation Emirati artist and an innovative thinker of a distinctive signature in his paintings and a bold approach to his sculptures. He developed his own style present in all his works, the style of movement through which different types of fine art are explored, understood, and nurtured. Combined with an unwavering resolve to challenge the present situation, change the accepted and bring new perspectives to the foreground, and, therefore, overturn the standards in an exciting way, this style has contributed to the interest of his audience in culture and language through using a new perspective.
Bin Lahej’s talent is manifested in the presentation of creative individuality, not the comprehensive solutions of design. His style is characterized by a deep, personal, artistic perspective. Using canvas, metal, or wood, he creates artworks that promote better intellectual and emotional connections between the art object and the audience.
