(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Al-Sabah opened Sunday a pavilion of late Kuwaiti artist Ayoub Hussein Al-Ayoub at Bait Al-Othman Museum, which included many of his paintings and personal belongings.
"We remember with utmost gratitude and appreciation the artistic march of one of the iconic formative artists in Kuwait," Sheikh Salman said in a speech at the opening of the pavilion, organized by Kuwait's Heritage Team of the Voluntary Work Center.
He said works of late Al-Ayoub reflected his genuine skills to document Kuwait's history in his paintings.
"The pavilion is not only to honor Al-Ayoub's achievements ... but to attract attention of our youth on human icons who worked for the entire lives in the service of Kuwait," said the minister.
Head of Voluntary Work Center Sheikha Amthal Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said Al-Ayoub played a major role to documenting the social and cultural life of the Kuwaiti people.
Al-Ayoub's paintings have become a reference for architecture, social activities and traditional Kuwaiti costumes, she noted.
Sheikha Amthal called on Kuwaiti students to visit the pavilion to learn how their ancestors used to live.
Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Ahmad Al-Mulaifi said Al-Ayoub served Kuwait as a teacher and principal for more than 30 years.
"The late Al-Ayoub was a role model in dedication and many of his students remember his ethics and morals," he noted.
Al-Ayoub began, since retirement in 1979, to document the history of Kuwait through his work.
Al-Ayoub's daughter, Hana' said his father's studio, which consisted of his last yet unfinished painting, was installed in the pavilion.
She said she was proud that the pavilion be a "historic and traditional reference for the current generations to know their past and life of their ancestors." Al-Ayoub, who passed away in November 2013, was born in 1932 and graduated from Al-Mubarakiya School in 1949. He has more than 700 works and publications all about tradition.
