Catch amazing artists in action at Tuwaiq Sculpture in Riyadh

The art festival includes creative workshops and panel discussions.

It’s time to paint the town, as an exciting art festival is scheduled to take place across Riyadh next year. Tuwaiq Sculpture gives visitors the rare chance to see artists in action. During the event, there will be several activities including interactive workshops and panel discussions.

Now in its fifth year, Tuwaiq Sculpture is part of Riyadh Art and aims to turn the city into a gallery without walls,  with more than 1,000 artworks to be displayed across the capital. The festival brings together 30 artists from Saudi Arabia and around the world. This year, the event has been curated by Marek Wolynski and explores the theme Dimensions of Movement, which includes conceptions of progress, modernity and the ever-expanding horizons of human aspiration

“The upcoming Tuwaiq Sculpture aspires to shape a narrative of innovation, ambition, and expansion, turning Riyadh into a vibrant canvas of art and urban dynamism,” Marek noted. “Dimensions of Movement is more than a theme – it is a glimpse into the very soul of the ongoing transformation,” he continued. 

What makes Tuwaiq Sculpture unique is that visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at artists in action. The artists will produce large-scale sculptures out of raw blocks of granite, which will become permanent artworks across the city. Visitors can see the live sculpting and join tours across the capital, with further details being revealed soon.
