About This Book

Saudi Arabian artist Faisal Samra firmly asserts his willingness to stray from the beaten track of conventional art forms. His curiosity and intellectual nomadism lead him to effortlessly reconcile modernity with the traditional culture of his origins. Born in Bahrain, Samra studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Having dabbled with design, Samra’s diverse artworks, which combine media such as painting, sculpture, and installation, reveal an obsession with visual culture and imagery, often involving a mélange of references to historical and contemporary realities.
