Audi Dubai supports distinguished Emirati artist Mattar Bin Lahej

25.07.2013: Audi Dubai represented by Al Nabooda Automobiles, is supporting self-taught Emirati artist Mattar




Audi Dubai represented by Al Nabooda Automobiles, is supporting self-taught Emirati artist Mattar Bin Lahej in his new exhibition of his latest work at the Armani Café Atrium at Dubai Mall.



The authorized dealer of Audi in Dubai and the Northern Emirates is backing the artist as he prepares to showcase his ‘Spread of Language’ sculpture until 15 August 2013. The stainless steel sculpture is inspired by verses from the Holy Quran and the old poets. Approximately 430 letters seem to flow out of the piece of art.


Mattar Bin Lahej was born and raised in Dubai. He is an active painter, sculptor and photographer who has been recognized in recent years through his participation in local and international exhibitions, such as Abu Dhabi Art, the Berlin Art Fair in Germany, as well as in Morocco and Kuwait. He nurtures young talent through his annual kids summer camps 'More than Art', which are held at his own gallery, Marsam Mattar, in Satwa, Dubai. 


“Supporting cultural heritage is so important to us at Audi Dubai. We are thrilled to be able to encourage artists to embark upon inventive and original projects. Mattar’s unique painting style represents strength, while the movement theme in his sculptures embodies wisdom and inspiration,” said Ali Al Nabooda, General Manager, Audi Dubai.




 “It is a privilege to be able to help promote his artwork to our customers and the wider community, and publicly commend his creativity.”


Mattar Bin Lahej remarked: “I would like to thank Audi Dubai and Al Nabooda Automobiles for their support in recognizing Emirati artists. It is great to see an international premium brand nurturing local UAE talent.”


Just recently Audi Dubai welcomed Karim Al Iraqi, the famous poet, singer and songwriter to an exclusive VIP poetry evening at the Audi showroom in Dubai.


Audi has a long history of supporting artistic and creative achievements worldwide.


At Audi conventional ways of seeing and thinking are continually challenged.


This way the German premium brand creates cars with contemporary design and technology are and plays an active role in shaping the mobility of the future, not unlike an artist who has the opportunity to change impressions of the present and the thinking of the future.




The Audi Group delivered 1,455,100 cars of the Audi brand to customers in 2012. In 2012, the Company posted revenue of €48.8 billion and an operating profit of €5.4 billion. Audi produces vehicles in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm (Germany), Győr (Hungary), Changchun (China) and Brussels (Belgium). The Audi Q7 is built in Bratislava (Slovakia). In November 2012, CKD production of the Audi Q7 was added to the existing Audi A4, A6 and Q5 manufacturing operations in Aurangabad (India). At the Brussels plant, production of the Audi A1 has been running since 2010, while production of the new A1 Sportback began in 2012. The Audi Q3 has been built in Martorell (Spain) since June 2011.  The Company is active in more than 100 markets worldwide. AUDI AG’s wholly owned subsidiaries include AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. (Győr, Hungary), Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. (Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy), AUDI BRUSSELS S.A./N.V. (Brussels, Belgium), quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm and the sports motorcycle manufacturer Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. (Bologna, Italy). Audi currently employs more than 68,000 people worldwide, including around 50,000 in Germany. The brand with the four rings plans to invest a total of €11 billion by 2015 – mainly in new products and the expansion of production capacities – in order to sustain the Company’s technological lead embodied in its “Vorsprung durch Technik” claim. Audi is currently expanding its site in Győr (Hungary) and will start production in Foshan (China) in late 2013 and in San José Chiapa (Mexico) from 2016.

Audi has long been fulfilling its social responsibility on many levels – with the aim of making the future worth living for generations to come. The basis for Audi’s lasting success is therefore formed by environmental protection, the conservation of resources, international competitiveness and a forward-looking human resources policy. One example of AUDI AG’s commitment to environmental issues is the Audi Environmental Foundation. Within the context of “Vorsprung durch Technik,” which extends far beyond its products, the company is directing its activities toward a major goal – comprehensive CO2-neutral mobility.

AUDI AG’s commitment to the region was confirmed through the foundation of its fully owned subsidiary in 2005. The current Middle East model range comprises the Audi A1, A4, the A5 Coupe, Sportback, Cabriolet and RS 5, the A6 & S6, A7 & S7, A8 L & S8, the Audi Q3, Q5 and Q7, the Audi TT Coupe/Roadster and TT RS Coupe, the Audi R8 Coupe and R8 Spyder as well as R8 V10 plus.
