LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
I was born in Basra in 1989 in the south of Iraq, the city of the sea breeze, in harmony with the sound of the seagulls, and then I moved to live in Turkey, then Syria and Lebanon, and finally I settled here in Norway, the country where I found security and safety. During this course of my life, I went through many experiences and events that helped greatly in highlighting my talent. And refine my personality, to look as if the events in which I lived in paintings steeped in the deep sea of my mind I can sail, rowing and diving deep in search of the source of inspiration from time to time. Becoming a vast and fertile imagination and the product of many years' experiences and ideas, the fertile imagination attracts wonderful reality.
Everything in this world for me is an artistic glimpse, whether it is a cloud and how the colors merged into it or the rain beads and the reflection of light on them, trees, mountains, streets,
Every beautiful thing stops me pause meditation and ultimately takes me to form a meaningful story drawn from every detail of this thing, art began for me and I am at the age of five as the landscape attracted me to it strongly and started drawing trees and I noticed that each tree differs from the other as well as mountains and its greatness and reflection of light On her and her strength is the thing that pushed me to draw all that takes my mind on a long journey and thus formed a special relationship between me and the drawing in which I find venting on my feelings and my thoughts. I was unable to enter an institute to study art or something like that. I was from a simple family that could not provide the expenses of the institute, but I had the talent for drawing that I inherited from my father, and so I began to develop myself by continuing creativity and searching for new and developed methods.
My fingers used to flow with colors to embody a painting that is often mysterious to others but has deep meaning.
I love being tired and tired of my paintings that require me time and clarity of mind, and in the end I feel as if I were living in the painting as if it became part of my being breathing from my breath and breathing from its breath.
There is a deep connection between the meaning that I draw and the colors I choose in the painting. Each line or point in the painting took a precious part of my time to express a sophisticated meaning in my imagination.
Most of the artwork that you like is a glimpse of the nature that I feel integrated into drawing, so that the result is a spiritual artwork that takes everyone who looks carefully into a world of wonderful mixture between symbols and great meanings.
So imagination was the engine that unleashed the talent that I have in order to go out and navigate between experiences and sensations and result in each time a work of art in which imagination and reality unite together.
