The Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman completed 80% of the Ajman murals project, which was inaugurated to decorate the Emirate and give aesthetic touches to its streets and buildings in all areas and neighborhoods of Ajman.

His Highness Abdulrahman Mohammed Al Nuaimi, Director General of the Department said that the project was launched under the generous patronage of and with great support from HH Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Head of the Department, for his keenness to adopt all innovative projects that create a distinctive mark of the Emirate and reflect the positive image that qualify it to be one of the most important tourist cities in the world.

He pointed out that seven international and local artists contributed to the success of this project in cooperation with the Sculpture Company for Design; elaborating that the team overseeing the project set a precise plan to choose the quality of murals that embody the life, history, and identity of the Emirate.

He clarified that the emirate has been able to complete the first three-dimensional painting painted on the front of a building in Al-Nakheel in Ajman to be the largest painting of its kind in the United Arab Emirates. It is the name of Ajman in English where the French artist Shkto succeeded in completing this painting in an unconventional way and in a record time who challenged the element of time to produce this painting with the best possible way to attract the attention of everyone to enjoy its attractive colors and distinctive shape.

For his part, Dr. Eng. Mohammed Ahmed Bin Omair Al Muhairi, Executive Director of Infrastructure Development Sector at the Department said that the project is part of the Ajman Pulse Project which aims to accomplish sustainable development and enhance the standards and quality of life in the Emirate, so we decided that there must be a variety of murals that are consistent with the achievement of these objectives.

Dr. M. Bin Omair that the project is proceeding according to the time plan set where the artist Ramy Elzaghawy completed the “Skip” horse painting of His Highness Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman and Chairman of the Executive Council, which is the one of the most beautiful horses around the world and the one of the most prominent horses of Ajman’s Stud that achieved global achievements in several important championships.

Dr. M. Bin Omair pointed out that the international artist, EL Seed, completed a unique masterpiece using Arabic calligraphy, which includes a quote by the forgiven Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Allah’s mercy upon him, that he gave during his speech on the First National Environment Day 1998, where he said, "Our fathers and grandfathers have lived on this land and co-existed with its environment in land and sea, and realized, through nature and by delicate senses, the need to preserve and to take only as much as they needed, and to leave what future generations will find as a source of good and a fountain of giving." Further, he clarified that the working team focused on important topics in the paintings that strengthen the awareness and establish the positive culture of the UAE’s residents and visitors.

According to Dr. M. Bin Omair that the artist Diaa Allam, completed an exceptional mural in the form of a whirlpool formed by the letters of the words of the poem, "Positive Energy", by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, which urges readers to be positive at all times and strengthens the power of determination, hope and ambition while calling for hard work and showing Allah Almighty’s reward for this work.

He also added that the artists will work on completing all the remaining paintings during the coming few days, to present an exceptional vision of Ajman. The artist, Fatima Al Ali, will work on competing a painting about traditional games, while Majid Ahmed will work on finishing his murals that express Ajman’s local identity, which will be painted on the pillars of the Sheikh Humaid Bridge and will include famous national phrases. The artist known as Julia will finish a mural in her personal style, using cheerful colours. Al Muhairi stressed that the project will be completed by the end of July.
