Osama Afnan is a long standing member of ARTE and a regular exhibitor at the ARTE markets held at every second and fourth Friday of the month in Times Square Center.
Originally from Sudan, Osama creates canvasses that bring you right to the heart of village life in his native Africa. But it is his depiction of the Dubai and Abu Dhabi skylines that translate the vibrancy and urgency of the city, as told through his direct paint application with the use of a palette knife. His keen sense of movement makes his art electric. Close up, you can distinguish the individual strokes and colours, but it’s in stepping back, that you can really take in the detailed scenes created by his talented hands.
Osama is always at the ready with his charcoals and pencils for on-the-spot portraits, so pass by to visit this colourful character next month!
