Nidal Khaddour

Painter Nidal Khaddour uses his brush to create work that highlights beautification in its essence by drawing upon unconventional inspirations, mainly the impact of the socio-political state around him. The paintings see the unification of geometric abstraction with colours reminiscent of Impressionist paintings. This unification serves the artist’s aim to create a positive reflection of his world. Khaddour explains that ‘sadness pushes [him] to create joy. [He] has the desire to make the world see beauty, instead of ugliness.’
