AIHTIWA “THE HUG” – ABDULLAH HADIA
When Abdullah repainted the painting “The Kiss” to Gustav Klimt, he noticed that the expression of embrace is stronger and clearer than the kiss, so Abdullah tries through his painting to give the meaning of containment as a single entity isolated from the outside world that reflects their desires and color it with Libyan features and culture.
Perhaps “the kiss” painting of Klimt is his most famous work and the clearest celebration of the desire for love, the simple composition of the painting shows the feelings of the duo and they are decorated with circular forms on the woman’s dress, to express the kindness and softness as in roses. By contrast, the man’s robe is decorated with strong rectangular shapes. Both models evolved from Klimt’s personal symbolism to distinguish his unique style.
