Saudi Art Guide is a resource for art enthusiasts and followers of Saudi Arabia’s growing art scene. Created in 2013 by Adnan Z. Manjal and Ziad N. El-Sayed, Saudi Art Guide was a response to massive social changes and recognition of art in the kingdom.
The art scene was in need of a platform to help audiences navigate the local creative scene, and showcase the great achievements of Saudi artists in the kingdom, the region and on the international stage. Amidst the growing number of Saudi galleries and artists, Saudi Art Guide became the grass-roots one-stop hub dedicated to drawing attention to the voices of Saudi artists, galleries, institutions, organizations and cultural venues. It has achieved this through its unique directory and by highlighting creative events throughout the kingdom, both through its guide and through social media channels.
