Hussein Almohasen

Al Mohasen’s work, characterized by a singular dialogue between the audience and the artist, conceives of images and visual environments as a series of surgical incisions, cutting open the theater of horror and comedy, called the Middle East, into dialogical snapshots. But these images are never static; Al Mohasen’s sharp-colored stenciled images translate into continuous and extended narratives of experience. They are not only attempting to describe the world, but actively participate in it.

Hussein paints with total freedom and expresses himself through bold colors taking us with him to the imaginary environment of his canvases. He puts us in a strange labyrinth. He breaks the barrier of stereotype, monotony, and the ready-made artistic cliches that live under the shadow of others.
