Title: AL HAKAWATI “The Storyteller ” – Execution 2020 Measuring 140X100 technique; Oil paint on canvas wooden table support.

Work published with official quotation on the ARTPRICE international portal.



AL HAKAWATI “The Storyteller “is the first pictorial-narrative work of a series, which arise from the silence of the soul between past and present in a journey towards the sacred and profane. In the journey, the viewer in the absence of a memory, erased by artificial theorems, gets lost only to find himself again and Al Hakawati becomes the narrator and guardian of an ancient tradition. The journey is that of the soul where history in search of an end, intertwining with others to infinity, is transformed into the history of man himself. The Storyteller’s face appears in space and time, here he crushes with a demon who is part of his tragedy that tries to dissolve. The work is the first cameo of a tale made up of legends, where places are the meeting point of peoples who make their acquaintance in intertwining wonderful stories. Stories that escape reason leading us into the world of brilliant madness is misunderstood which makes the fire that feeds our passions burn.

The work was presented in an exhibition made by the Amedeo Modigliani Foundation at the “Franco Zeffirelli Foundation ” museum in Florence (documentation attached) and in various online exhibition.
