I started this artistic project in 1987. Throughout my life as an artist I used all kinds of colours, such as Oil colours, Water colours, oil pastels, Gouache, Acrylic etc… This piece is one of a series of paintings that are inspired from the tradition in folklore dress, carpets and historical places in the Middle East. Until now it is an ongoing project of mine to continue to translate my roots on to my canvases .
