About

"Mysterious but true" Mixed media painting by Hossam Dirar 2019 Acrylic on canvas 39.5" × 31.5" inch In this series of paintings I depicted the inner emotions of women, their dreams, their love for life. "I imagine women dreaming about achieving their dreams, expressing themselves, dancing joyfully alone and smiling at life with the freedom, that their are missing in their real lives. I painted emotions with an abstract style, sometimes I feel women are abstract as well, because for me their a mysterious creature. Those great women are subtle, they are appear bit by bit from the colors." * * * ABOUT THE ARTIST * * * Hossam Dirar is an Egyptian contemporary artist based in Barcelona, Spain.
