DUBAI: Saudi artist Mohammed Al-Saleem broke a world record for Saudi artists this week during Sotheby’s 20th Century Art/Middle East sale in London.  

The talent’s 1986 artwork – inspired by the skyline of Riyadh that radiates from the desert – coined $1.1 million, seven times its pre-sale estimate, and the world record for any Saudi artist at auction.
