''Faces and faces, and a strange world I feel and see, but no one else does!
It is the universe with everything in it, all the stones, the plants, the animals and the humans. Everything is so little, but still caries another great universe inside of it.
I paint this world with all its details and greatness.
I paint with freedom, ignoring the limitations and the restrictions of the believable and the unbelievable.
So that you see in my paintings, creatures living side by side, imaginary creatures which has no existence, and others made from stone, and some with humanize inanimate.
My visual memory was formed at the museums of Palmyra, Damascus and Aleppo, where you can hear echoes of the epics of Zenobia, the Phoenicians and the Canaanites, and see the ancient god.
The colours in those paintings have lived in times of peace and times of war, and I’ve lived with them believing that good and beauty must prevail.
Today I paint in my country, in the war, I paint the strange bad moments in a strange way, I paint the strange beauty and seeking life''
