GCC Comes Into Being was inspired by the May 26th, 1981 cover page of the Khaleej Times. In this painting, I portray Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan where he opens the summit meeting in Abu Dhabi.
In the background, I used recycled newspapers, and I depict a map of the GCC countries. The blue colour that I have used in the background is to symbolize the trust, loyalty and the wisdom and I wanted to emphasize the inherent cultural unity of the Gulf Arab States.
