(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) A solo art exhibition, Dream Coat, by Omani artist Moosa Omar was recently inaugurated by Eng Hamoud bin Mohammed al Mahrooqi, head of Royal Estates Affairs in Royal Court Affairs, at Bait al Zubair Museum.

Omar said, ''In these paintings and others, I endeavour to explore implicit and explicit spaces in history in order to reflect on our daily life and explore the spirituality of humanity. These paintings are inspired by the story of Prophet Yousef.

''They are presented as an artistic vision where colours are used on jute, combining the roughness of old textures with deep reflection. This combination takes you to an earlier era where you can feel history and hear its stories. Art, from my perspective, is not just an instrument for expression and communication with others, but rather a hidden power of the soul. Art creates a world parallel to real life.''

Dream Coat follows from a previous exhibition of the same name held in 2012 at thesame venue.

The works were then exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in Kuwait and the Visual Arts Center (Katara) in Qatar in 2013.

Omar has participated and led numerous workshops and is a member of the International Plastic Arts Association-UNESCO, the Omani Society for Fine Arts (OSFA), the Cultural Club and Youth Studio, Oman.

Among his honours are awards from Australia, Oman, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait.

His work is part of several important collections in Oman as well as in Qatar, Egypt, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia. Notable collectors in Oman are the Diwan of Royal Court, the General Organization of Youth Sports and Cultural Activities, ministries of Information, Foreign Affairs, Heritage and Culture, OSFA, Bait al Zubair Museum, the Cultural Club, the British Embassy and Shangrl-La's Barr al Jissah Resort & Spa.

The Dream Coat exhibition will run till May 1 and is open for viewing from Saturday to Thursday from 9.30am to 6pm.
