OMAR HOUSSREY

B. 1997, Montréal Canada. Based in Marbella, Málaga Spain.

Omar Houssrey's work exists in a similar space as his multicultural identity - liminal, but grounded in its liminality. Making drawings charged by a gut feeling, he is unafraid of descending into the realms of comic illustration or the typography of street art, Omar speaks multiple aesthetic languages. His interest in world history, language and culture are the driving forces behind his artworks. By renouncing digital perfection and inclining towards automatic mark-making, he gives rise to a collection of expressive clutter. Omar’s attempt at making sense of the world is therefore able to be understood in one way or another, pointing to human resilience and the idea that everything is connected beyond life’s superficialities.
