A Bahraini artist’s painting highlighting the role of women during the pearling era will feature in a 2020 calendar.
Leena Al Ayoobi’s painting represents the month on January on the calendar issued by CFM International, the world’s largest producer of jet engines.
CFM International creates a fine art calendar every year, with artists chosen from countries served by between GE Aviation USA and Safran Aircraft Engines of France, the joint companies behind CFM.
Both a large wall calendar and small desk calendar are produced, with 11,000 copies of each given to aviation customers across the globe.
Leena has been exhibiting her work in Bahrain and other GCC states since 2014, and uses bold colours to make references to the Kingdom’s rich heritage.
