Several times during workshops, I met Khalid Al Rawas. Every time his ideas and stories fascinated me. During the workshop of Arabic calligraphy in the Omani Society for Fine Arts in Salalah-Dhofar, we started to talk. The next day he brought me three works. The works were an invitation to walk inside his mind into his imagination.
“Sometimes I try to tell stories, sometimes I express my feelings. When the idea or the story is in my head, I immediately start to make drawings or to paint with oils. If necessary I can also use mixed media. Sometimes I couple technical skills with my imagination, sometimes I don’t. I even don’t look at rules of perspective. As a child I was fascinated by cartoons and by Anima the Japanese manga series. In this series I was especially fascinated by the eyes of the personages. Still in my works I like to accentuate eyes. Kahlid Al Rawas is convinced that there will be an interest for his works in galleries. Last year he participated with one work in a group exhibition of the Omani Society for Fine Arts.
