Celebrity Chef Zarmig Halladjian exhibits another side of her multifaceted talent, showcasing 40 of her paintings at her solo exhibition titled “Inspiration of the Fruit of Susie Tree” which opened on Monday at Katara Building 19.
The show, which runs until October 8, features paintings of different sizes created without using the paintbrush, but the artist’s fingers, drawing a close relation between her passion for gastronomy and her penchant for visual arts.
In her Katara debut, the artist displays paintings which focus on women and convey various feelings and emotions expressed in vibrant colours through her unique style.
“Katara has opened its doors to the artist Zarmig to offer visitors of Katara a collection of the most beautiful works of art. It would provide the public with a new and distinct experience,” said Katara General Manager Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim Al Sulaiti, who officially opened the exhibition.
Zarmig said: “I am pleased to present my first exhibition in Katara, this beautiful and attractive cultural edifice”
Zarmig adds that each of her paintings tells a certain story of her life. She said that she worked to focus on the presence of women and she chose to address the exhibition in the name of her mother for her love and sacrifices, as the mother is symbol of tenderness, affection and love.
Zarmig holds a master degree in Public Health of Food and has several television programs in local and international television channels. She published several cooking books, two of which are Culinary Art secrets and The Art of Carving. She has been a judge in international culinary competitions and a consultant in the food and hospitality industries.
