Abdulnasser Al-Amri is a name which was used by Abdulnasser Gharem (see there) when he was showing work of a more traditional style. In May 2008 his painting of the Kaaba (Composition II) was the winner of the BMG Foundation sponsored 'Art for Life' exhibition at the Jeddah Hilton Hotel and went to a charity auction in London during the Gulf Polo Cup. Although Al-Amri painted he told Arab News he concentrates on the concept of his painting and thinks it is unfortunate that not more styles of modern art are exhibited in Saudi Arabia. (2009).
