Leila Heller Gallery

Leila Heller Gallery will be presenting a new exhibition by Philip Taaffe from 19 March until 31 August, in what will be the artist’s first solo show in the Middle East. Taaffe is one of the most eminent artists of his generation, and the exhibition will feature some of his most recent paintings.

The paintings are inspired by a variety of sources – everything from Roman mosaics and Syrian embroidery to calligraphy and Mongolian masks. Known for his fusion of techniques, including collage, silkscreen printing, and marbling, Taaffe has mixed the decorative with the narrative, as well as the ancient with the modern, creating a series of striking artworks.
