Omar Al Shahabi’s paintings reflect the complex human configurations, always on the move… in solitude or in an overcrowded space. The colours are sometimes dark and other times light and bright. We are in a constant state of transition. Childhood memories, disappointments, triumphs and emotions among others, create a fusion.
Any passage we go through leaves a definite trace on us as individuals and hence on our relationship with others. Omar’s figures are playful, reminding us of Aladdin’s magic lamp and other fairy tales, yet through the multiple gazing faces we travel back through the tunnel of transition.
