Portrait By A Nation paintings to go on sale

How often is it that you get a chance to be a part of something truly special? Well, after many hours of painting and judging later, it is now your turn to own some of the most unique and bespoke art works that are on offer in Oman. But we suggest you hurry up, because there are only 46 paintings on offer.

The paintings on display are by the 46 finalists in Y Magazine’s historic Portrait By A Nation” art competition, which saw a record 1,500 participants vie for the top spot to create a lasting tribute to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al Said.

The paintings will be on display at the IDdesign outlet at Markaz Al Bahja Mall, in Seeb. A minimum price tag of RO25 will be put on each painting, but you can bid for a higher price and the proceeds from the paintings will go to the child artists.

The paintings will be showcased from December 29 to January 5, 2017, from 10am to 10pm, during which interested buyers can put down their offers for the paintings.

Y’s Portrait By A Nation art competition was held over the weekend of November 11 and 12, and the winners were announced at a special ceremony at the Grand Hyatt Muscat hotel on November 28.
