Greenbox dictionary of Saudi Arabian artists

Abdulmajid Ali Al-Jarouf is a painter from Saihat. He has a BA (1974) in architecture from the University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dahran in which year he was also awarded for the general presidency of the Youth Welfare art exhibition and participated in Libya. In 2003 he had a solo exhibition in The Atelier of Jeddah and in 2004 joined a group event in the Gulf Club in Saihat.

On the website listed below he has a gallery of his work which includes drawings from his sketchbook. I selected the collage like paintings  here because they betray knowledge and adaption of such artists as Michaelangelo and Delacroix. (2009).
