very much, most arabs love too. I have come to Turkey and Istanbul on the occasion of Symposium without

hesitation. We are trying to complete our work of art with other friends. Ambience is very good”.

Alhaidous, who stated that the large part of the portrait was completed but it would be ready tomorrow, said that

“It is pleasing to draw the painting of someone I love so much. I am going to draw the portrait of Atatürk after

finishing this. I’m very happy for my works to be exhibited here.”

Mayor of Fatih, Mustafa Demir stated that they were happy for hosting an international painting workshop work.

Demir who stated that Istanbul was a center of art, said:

"Fatih or “walled city” is a place contributed to art time out of mind. Our painters carry on their works in the

foyer area. This place where the work is being done has become an art studio Our painters do their works. Works

are being done everyday under the moderatorship of an artist. Once our painters complete their works of art,

creditable ones are going to be exhibited here.”
