Artist Statement

I like to highlight the ordinary in my watercolor paintings. By most standards, an old rusted car sitting in someone's yard would be considered an eyesore. To me, it's an opportunity to make the observer say, "Look at how the flowers celebrate just below the fender."

Artist Bio

 

Mohamad is a decoration engineer and artist whose attention to detail can be seen in homes across the United Arab Emirates, where he lived and operated his company FreeStyle Interior Design for over 12 years. From outside stone work to inside murals, Mohamad has helped personalize living space in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah (UAE), as well as in his birth country Syria. On a smaller scale, Mohamad has been commissioned to create charcoal and pencil portraits. Currently, the artist's favorite medium is watercolor, used to transform ordinary objects into vibrant images.
