Bahraini artist Leena Al Ayoobi

Bahraini artist Leena Al Ayoobi’s works have gone on display at the German Orthopaedic Hospital in Salmaniya after she was chosen as the organisation’s Artist of the Season for autumn.

Leena is an artist and designer, founder and owner of Dar Alfann, and a member of the Bahrain Art Society. Her work is influenced by her Arabian culture and traditions with a touch of Japanese manga style. 

The exhibition is part of the hospital’s efforts to support and encourage local artistic talents. CEO Dr Heiner Abel says: “The German Orthopaedic Hospital is delighted to be associated with Leena and her wonderful, colourful artwork, and we believe that it will add some liveliness and Arabesque flair to our European-style hospital for the next few months. It also serves to highlight the strong bonds between Bahrain and Germany.”
