I love his work - he has a beautiful, light touch with the pigments, and his use of color is excellent!

Very nice! I like the bold brushwork and the crispness of the compositions

This friend is an expat and have been working in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia since early 90's. He told me he did some comics illustrations for some famous publications in the US. This guy is a master artist.

I have more of his art works to post later on.

I'm impressed with the technical abilities of the artwork. I work as a art consultant in a fine art gallery.

He sells his painting. Some of these paintings were done in 2009. He works & resides in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia presently.
