Born in 1996, Omar Abulsheikh joined the Arts of Life in 2019. New to the studio, he is still developing his art practice. The light-hearted approach to his emerging artwork reflects a whimsical outlook at life.
“I use paint. Pencil. Sketch them out. Shaping.”
Abulsheikh’s paintings develop slowly as he carefully layers paint to achieve a desired hue. His work is further identifiable by the heavy textures built up during this layering process. Artwork inspiration precipitates from ideas generated in his mind, and the subject matter vacillates accordingly.
“I like to draw. I like myself. Happy going.”
