Memories of artist Ian Ali
By ANNE HILTON Tuesday, August 24 2010
ON AUGUST 13 and 14, the corridor leading to the Hilton Ballroom was converted into an art gallery for a two-day retrospective exhibition of the works of the late Ian Ali — artist, cultural activist, teacher, television pioneer, writer, illustrator and scout leader.
The Hilton was chosen as the venue for the exhibition because Ian Ali had his very first solo exhibition in the hotel, management bought a lot of his paintings, and loaned them for this exhibition titled: “Renaissance 2010, A Revival of the Works of Ian Ali”.In a brief opening ceremony on August 13 the artist’s daughters, friends, and the Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Culture paid tribute to the man who loved children, who, surrounded with kids in his ground-breaking TV programme Riki Tiki, taught them to draw, to paint and to appreciate art.
