Concept and Style
Sundus Alibrahim is a contemporary figurative painter who works in Dubai and Riyadh. Her colorful paintings and distinctive personal style emanate energy and spontaneity, it expresses the vibrant spirit and atmosphere of the expressionist movement.
Portraits by Sundus immediately attract attention with their charisma, dynamism and wit. Active colors, uneven layers, fragmental bodies, sketchy lines and unconventional mixture of techniques and materials are the painter’s typical expressive means. The rebellious styles of Basquiat, Willem de Kooning, Warhol are named among her sources of inspiration.
Sundus sees art as a way to experiment and explore the unknown: both the inner personality of her models and of her own state of mind. For her, art serves not only to depict the reality but also to subjectively rethink it, open a dialogue, express personal associations, and find new meanings.
