ARTIST STATEMENT

Drawing is the friend I can always trust.

 

I think of my artworks as sanctuary. It’s a feeling beyond description where I can hear my own heartbeats. My work tends to focus on beauty and details, in their all forms. I’m trying my best to bring out the beauty in everything surrounding me and place them where I want to see on the drawing to share them.

 

I have a connection with horses as they are a world of beauty on their own, drawing them is so engaging and it is like to dive and dive in an endless sea of shades, lights, colors, and textures.

 

I believe that art mediums are tools to shape out what my eyes want to see and what my heart wants to express. And this belief made me able to use different mediums to create my artwork. 

 

I always tend to rely on using crossing lines to shape out the objects and the shades in my drawing.

 

Most of my artworks are inspired from my country’s distinguished symbols, history, and traditions.
