Damascus, (SANA)-More than 30 plastic art drawings by the Venezuelan artists Ivan Dario Hernandez and Benetto Mesiss decorated the walls of Khan Asaad Basha, old Damascus, celebrating Venezuela’ s National Day on Tuesday.
Venezuelan Ambassador in Damascus Imad Saab told SANA that the cultural and intellectual exchange between Syria and Venezuela is important because it constitutes an integral part of the excellent relations between the two countries in various fields, adding that there is no room for investment better than investment in culture.
‘ The Syrian audience can get acquainted with the effect of the Bolivarian revolution on the Venezuelan people and artists through this exhibition, ’ Saab said.
He added that the Venezuelan embassy in Damascus will hold various cultural activities in Syria. The activities will include a musical concert on the sideline of the 57th Damascus International Fair, in addition to screening series of Venezuelan films and translating a group of cultural booklets for Venezuelan authors, intellectuals and poets.
These activities aim at introducing the literary movement in Venezuela to the Syrian people. The paintings present an overview of the developed level of the Venezuelan plastic art movement and the Venezuelan artists’ ability to simulate the era and express their issues through fine arts.
Hernandez and Mesiss hailed the Arab civilization, particularly the Arab plastic arts which are characterized by a unique peculiarity in terms of geometric decoration, plant, and Islamic architecture.
