    This is a very good book that highlights the most known Saudi artists and their iconic pieces It's written in English The books starts with a collection of essays that talks about Saudi and the development of the arts and designs there Followed by a chapter on artists that highlights 26 Saudi artists Ten of them are Saudi females Then comes a chapter on galleries another on art and design initiatives and a final ones on patrons These three chapters make this book a great resource for starting artists It's packed full of useful information and important names What I love about this book is that it shows you the creative minds in Saudi and give them the recognition they deserve It shows a colourful and impressive part of the Saudi culture that isn't shared on the media Recommended

    Nicely done with up to date information of the Saudi Art Scene I recommend it to all people interested in the cultural change and of course to whom interested in Art There are Artists that need to be mentioned in future publicationsعمل جميل يلخص المشهد السعودي الفني يستعرض بعض بيوت الفن والمعارض المنشأة إضافة إلى عدد من الفنانين المميزين في الساحة هناك بالتأكيد المزيد من الفنانين غير المذكورين ولكن قد يكون ذلك بابًا لمثل هذه الأعمال التي توثق التغيرات الاجتماعية في السعودية أنصح به كل مهتم في المشهد السعودي والمهتمين بالفن بالتأكيد
