Hussein AlMohasen reaches beyond reality with his mesmerising new collection. His viewers experience a hypnotising visual journey, finding reality in a peaceful free manner; even if reality, sometimes, is not as desirable as we imagine it. Furthermore, colour is essential in his work, where the different connotations associated with certain colours beautify what he is trying to convey through art.
Behind the obvious simplicity of his work, lurks a decade-long journey shaped by poetry from the Arab world and the complex intersections between modern spaces and personal freedoms. AlMohasen’s work is visually global and overcomes regional paradigms, presenting the contemporary Arab experience after the poetry and music that inspired him: In the end, we all speak the same language. Hussein AlMohasen’s work has been exhibited across the Middle East since 1999. His most recent solo and group exhibitions have been held in Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, and Spain.
