The figures in Hatem Al-Ahmad’s paintings display complex allegorical ideas. Reflecting on society and the condition of the world that surrounds him, his paintings seem to present both aesthetic and personal preoccupations. Part of his objective is to allow the viewer to question culture and materiality and the condition of contemporary society.
