Arab Futurism, Mohammad Awwad

With exhibitions in Qatar, Oman, Germany and the UK, Mohammad Awwad is an internationally acclaimed Jordanian artist and arguably the Middle Eastern version of Salvidore Dali. He finds inspiration from all manner of haphazard places, from random colours and textures, through to bus tickets and old books. In his vintage, surreal style Awwad juggles new experiences, mediums and ideas, tackling contentious issues such as power and politics, the environment and culture, through dreamlike imagery. He attributes the explosive colours, cultural diffusion and distinctive character of his work to the myriad of influences and various cultures he has been exposed to.
