The Effectiveness of Integrating Metal and Textile to Creating Contemporary Artworks Inspired by Egyptian and Saudi Heritage

Abstract

Heritage expresses the link between human beings, their land, and their culture. It correlates the present with the past and promises the future. It means gaining knowledge, experience, and skills and provides the opportunity to create, develop, and innovate. Thus, this study investigated the effectiveness of integrating metal and textile to create contemporary artworks inspired by Egyptian and Saudi architecture heritage. It also addressed a geographical and historical introduction to Saudi Arabia and Egypt and reviewed some traditional folk crafts, code, decoration color, and symbolic meanings. Then the researchers, on the practical side, designed four innovative designs and applied them to the art using some of the decorations, the popularity of Egyptian and Saudi heritage, and the development of a range of modern designs and artworks. The research adopted the descriptive and experimental method and practical procedure by designing, borrowing, and inspiration—analysis of specific traditions and the methods of their ornament. Recommendations are given for practical ways other art and design faculty can build their art from heritage.
