Qaddafi Art

Who knew?  Moammar Qaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam Gaddafi is an artist.

The website for his exhibition “The desert is not silent” is long defunct, but Facebook still has some links, and there are still photos of the March 2010 Moscow showing on the website of the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation.

The exhibit is said to be a mix of archaeological artifacts and paintings from contemporary artists, including 50 paintings by Saif al-Islam himself.  It’s not clear which ones they are, but he is said to use bright colors.

I’m not much for representational art, but I rather like the orange one with the sun.
