Inspired by the marque’s rich history depicted in the recent ‘House of Rolls-Royce’ films and combining the philosophy of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars’ co-founder, Sir Henry Royce – Rolls-Royce AGMC is pleased to unveil its latest original Arabic artwork created by Dubai-based Syrian artist Khaled AlSaai.
Following the success of his first piece depicting the marque’s famed ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’, the second original artwork by AlSaai adorns world’s first experiential showroom – The Rolls-Royce Boutique.
This eye-catching artwork is new the focal point in the Boutique’s exclusive Bespoke Atelier which has taken cues from the worlds of fine art, design and high fashion, to provide customers with the opportunity to explore the possibilities that cutting-edge, Bespoke design allows. Commissioned by Mamdouh Khairallah, General Manager of Rolls-Royce Dubai and measuring an impressive 3 by 4 metres, the original artwork colourfully combines Rolls-Royce’s rich history and innovative present in an Arabesque fashion.
The original artwork features the words of Sir Henry Royce, ‘Accept nothing nearly right or good enough’ and ‘The quality will remain when the price is forgotten’, alongside the Latin quote ‘Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble’. These words are a part of the ethos which drives the luxury marque’s constant pursuit of creating the best motor cars in the world for over a century and are depicted in AlSaai’s new artwork which was two months in the making from inception to completion.
Inspired by the ‘House of Rolls-Royce’ and blending together the marque’s notable history and its visionary present, Khaled created this refined piece of original art by working primarily with acrylic paint paired with oils, and using a unique layering and overlapping technique which creates the most vibrant hues and visible texture.
Commenting on the artwork, Mamdouh Khairallah, General Manager of Rolls-Royce AGMC said, “It has been a privilege to work with Khaled again to create such a beautiful a piece representing both the past and present of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. We look forward to welcoming our valued customers to our Bespoke Atelier to see the piece for themselves as they gain inspiration for motor cars.”
This striking original artwork adorns the wall of the Bespoke Atelier, providing a sensational focal point for customers to further inspire them whilst creating their own unique Rolls-Royce motor car at the Rolls-Royce Boutique in City Walk, Dubai.
