Descripción The Al-Mansouria Foundation, Saudi Arabia. h/c + d/j, large format, 30.5x23.5cm, light general wear, profusely illustrated. A 295 page hard-cover monograph featuring 120 color plates containing more than two-hundred paintings and drawings illustrating the thirty-year career of this prominent Saudi artist, and two studies of his life and work by Said Al-Seraihi and Nabil Naoum. Born into an obscure world of constant movement, travel and confusion, Dia Aziz Dia drew on these experiences to form the back ground required to create his art.Due to his father, who was a pioneer of the cultural movement in Saudi Arabia. His early travels took him from Mecca to Cairo, India, Jeddah, Beirut, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and Italy. His mother and her constant attempts to give Dia a normal childhood were the only stable thing in his life, she gained a real presence in the child's inner world. Her being there came as the evidence of clarity that paralleled the father's enigmatic nature and shed light on the prevailing confusion.Dia Aziz DiaDia's confidence in schooling only returned when he won a scholarship to study Art at the academy of fine Arts in Rome, where for four years he was in constant search and study to find and realize himself. Those years blossomed and perfected Dia's artistic vision and talentsUpon return to Saudi Arabia he became a teacher of Art. This position only lasted for 2 years because Dia felt it was diminishing his artistic talents due to monotonous and routine lifestyle.From that point on, Dia has been concentrating on his art. He passed through many hardships to balance his love of art, and necessities of life. Dia considered art an attempt to reveal the secret that was hidden behind appearance. Thus, he constantly tried to depict the human face because he considered it the key to understanding the person and away to question his or her secrets and inherent potential. This could be carried out through capturing the details of the face in a process that combined drawing and erasing. It resulted in an abstract face, not in the usual sense of abstraction, but in the sense of denying the details that were not relevant to the notion that the artist wanted to capture. The artist focused only on the meaningful fragments, which were the expression of the world that he was trying to depict.Dia worked himself to being one of the Arab worlds leading figures in art. Today his paintings are owned by prominent art lovers in Saudi Arabia and many of his sculptures can be found on some of Jeddah's main plazas and roads.He has successfully laid the foundation for anchoring art within a countries traditions and needs. These accomplishments have interested the Al Mansouria Foundation for Culture and Creativity to publish Dia's art as the first of a series of publications dedicated to the works of pioneering Saudi Artists.
