The visual arts are like an unspoken language, they are a means of communication between nations, as they help to transmit cultures. Visual arts are a cornerstone of Saudi culture, and for that, the Visual Arts Commission will work to promote this art form and empower professionals, practitioners and amateurs alike. Enhancing and supporting the sector will establish the Kingdom and its artists as pioneers, enabling them to be active contributors to the visual arts sector in the Kingdom and the world.
