” Art is life, influencing all that I am, thoughts, inspiration and feelings. A method of meditation, a connection of my soul to the world around me.”
Alkaaby’s creative journey started early in his childhood. His natural talents for drawing and painting inspired him to begin his education in Fine Art. While attending University his work was shaped by the local Masters of his hometown. They saw his potential as a young artist and shared their wealth of knowledge and expertise with him.
Alkaaby’s beautiful life was uprooted in 2005 with a change in the political climate. Alkaaby chose to embark on the journey of a lifetime and to immigrate to the US. It is here in the US that Alkaaby experienced a sense of creative freedom that allowed his works to soar to higher levels.
Alkaaby’s figurative work celebrates the energy and beauty of the sitter, translated to the viewer by his expert eye. His abstract work takes a moment in time, his personal energy and fuses it to the canvas.
Each piece of Alkaaby’s work is a meditation, a vision prior to his brush touching the canvas.
Alkaaby’s work is inspired by love, grace and beauty that surrounds him. He currently resides in San Diego.
