House of Peace

It has always been Khalili’s dream to see peace and harmony between the three great monotheistic faiths become reality. Since the early 1990’s he has been working on a project that reflects his belief in the power of combining art with interfaith understanding. He commissioned five large paintings from the renowned British artist Ben Johnson, which together create a vision of peace between the three faiths.
