My artistic work is a realistic study of the reaction of contemporary society with all its problems, whether cultural, social or economic, and its effects on contemporary man, and the connection of man to the culture of modern media, which is transmitted by the many technological media that linked all cultures to each other and which affected the relations of humans and some of them and the effects of these variables on social aspects and relationships Humanity in particular, and my works are part of human memory and imagination mixed with the components of globalization, which linked sentences, vocabulary and treatments (surreal, expressive or color symbolic) or all of them together in linear and personal treatments of the human element as a axis for building artistic work on the basis that man is the center of building the whole universe.
The color groups used are brutal in nature, sometimes explicit, and affect the neo-expressionism to a large extent. At other times, they relied on combining photography within the framework of the artwork and the color impulses of an abstract nature mixed with some graphics and scrawls, which combine ambiguity and alienation and apprehension and motivation as opposed to confusing the concepts and identity of the other absent in his presence.
I am looking for the idea, which moves me and moves my artistic motives towards expression, and also the idea is imposed on the style and type of material that I choose for expression, and I mix this idea with a state of emotional drama, which has a visual reaction to the viewers in moving their emotions, through the artistic composition.
Through these works, I wanted to send to the married person encrypted and semi-clear messages in order to move his imagination towards his participation in the interpretation of vocabulary that is part of a world of vague features or as a contemporary language understood by the world today, in an attempt to interpret a dream that may not have ended or has not begun yet, as I wanted to mix between Reality in a dream with broken lines just like a weaving process that links the vocabulary of reality with imagination and truth with legend.
