ART at ARTE in April – meet Fahema Fattah

I am Fahema Fattah. I was born in Baghdad, Iraq and I am a graduate of the University of Baghdad. I am married and have two girls and a boy. I immigrated with my family to Canada before 20 years ago, but work keeps us coming back to AD.
My art is a mix of self-taught and art education. In my work I like to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. Each piece I paint is from the past where I have come from as well as a preview of the future.
I have always loved using my imagination and my senses which are expressed, through my colorful paintings. Sometimes I depict my characters faceless or with vague features because I believe that everyone is a closed book and there is a hidden side in each person which can not been seen by others until exposed, which I leave its interpretation to the viewer.
I believe women are half the community and they should be represented in every part of life. I paint them as tall as a palm tree to indicate their glory and generosity.My main advice to new aspiring artists is to always express one’s self, and keep in mind every person has his own taste in art and always be positive and always seek improvement. ‪#‎artemarket‬‪#‎wemakewhatwesell‬
