ARTIST STATEMENTFAYEZ BARAKAT
My entire life has been dedicated to the pursuit of beauty along with its understanding and creation. As an artist, I derive my inspiration from the Masters and have dedicated a series of works paying homage to their artistic genius.
I carefully studied these Masters’ schools and, as we know, no artist lived long enough to realise, or complete, the works that they dreamt of to their own satisfaction.
I therefore chose certain artists whose works appealed to me the most. As the saying goes – “there’s nothing new under the sun” – I believe that we are nothing but a cell in the body of God. I believe that we all are connected within that body.
“Beauty is in the eye of he beholder”. Beholding the beauty of the works of these Masters that have preceded me, I have not only appreciated the ingenuity of their creations, but have been mesmerised by their accomplishments and the complexity of the techniques used in the final result of their works.
