Art has always been something I’ve admired. It keeps me high when everything else is low. Originally from Sudan, I was born and raised in Qatar. I started drawing dresses and flowers as a child, and as I grew, art grew with me. I then started studying it as my main subject in high school.
My art varies from abstract to portraits. The favorite mediums of mine are acrylic, oil paint, and pastels. I studied many artists such as Francis bacon and Gustav Klimt, but I’m mostly focusing on my roots, African and Sudanese art. I’m inspired mainly by vibrant colors, patterns, and culture; they remind me of my self.
