Main theme in the exposition is the car. “The form of this vehicle fascinates me. I like to add colours to the forms. With brushstrokes I emphasize the shapes. The works become a texture for the eye. First I am excited about the things I draw or paint. Then I want to share this with the public. That’s why I expose the works. My drawing and painting career started in 1970. Then I joined the Faculty of Fine Arts in Alexandria in Egypt. In 2005 I came to Oman. Till now I work as Assistant Professor Graphic design & IA Department at the Dhofar University in Salalah. I encourage the students to experiment within their works. They have to feel the essence of trial and error. It is my fifth exposition in Oman. But also in Italy, in Egypt, in Tunisia, in Kuwait, in the Emirates and in Germany my works were on display.” The more I walked through the exposition the more the works became little stories on their own. Sometimes the paintings captured in two dimensional canvas gives the illusion of three dimensions. The texture and the colours became alive. I choose three works out of the 47. One of the three works was also the most favorite work of the artist himself.
