"“There are people who can not see with their physical eyes, but they see through the mind. Such people can see the live and dead forms in all their colors, movements and strength. They surpass all boundaries, rules, space and time."
My name is Abdel Kader Wawi
In my art, reflection is key. My creative process involves deep introspection, connecting past and present experiences that resonate with my inner self. Art is not just a form of expression for me; it's a journey of self-liberation and exploration that I willingly share with those around me.
Movement is a prominent theme in my work, where I'm currently sowing seeds of love through abstract Arabic calligraphy. Every piece I create is a symphony of my life experiences, a mirror reflecting my personal growth and the vibrant world that continually shapes me.
When viewers engage with my art, I want them to feel the flow and energy embedded in each stroke and color. My art is an open invitation for dialogue, a conversation starter that enriches both the viewer's and my life experience.
Depending on my chosen technique, my creative routine varies. Meditation helps me find tranquility, stretching prepares me for photography, and journaling aids in conception. Overcoming challenges, particularly those related to ego and self-presentation, has been a crucial part of my artistic journey. Through continuous expression, dialogue with trusted peers, and relentless practice, I navigate these challenges, always moving forward, always evolving.
