Artist Interview: Fida Al Hussan

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls."
   - Pablo Picasso

Recently the work of Saudi Arabian artist Fida Al Hussan was brought to my attention by a friend of mine. Why? Well because for some reason Fida painted me. I had to get in contact with her because the painting itself is amazing. What an incredible honour!



Here's a short interview I conducted with Fida via email: 

Name: Fida Al Hussan

From: Saudi Arabia

What Inspires you, Fida?
My feelings, colors, fashion and how they are all linked which give us that identity.

How do you know when a piece is finished?
When I feel I am completely satisfied as I step back and see it.

Is there an element you like using best with your art?
Yes, I love the use of inscriptions that tell a story of my culture, using my taste of colors.

Final Question, Why did you choose to paint me?
I was interested in your blog, I liked it so much! This made me work on something different, an angle where I could express myseelf through you...

As I said above I am completely honored by this and I do recommend you check out Fida's art on her Instagram page: @fidaart
