Faris Alosaimi is a painter and Interior Designer, from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. While he studied Tourism and Antiquities at King Saud University, he is largely a self-taught artist.
Along with having an abiding interest in architecture and urban spaces, Alosaimi is a keen observer of human interactions around objects in space. His gestural abstractions of the human figure, produced on a large scale with often blurred or semi-obscure facial features, seek to capture fleeting emotions that mark the human condition. As the artist describes it, “it scares me that I might uncover myself completely in an artwork, which is why there’s always an intentionally missing or hidden aspect in my work.”
