The Iris Chronicles. A Love Affair with Art and Design

After months of hard work, and a bit.. well, a lot of escapism, The Iris Chronicles was finally born. There is only one copy which is currently in my possession. I plan to make other copies in a year or so once I’ve added recent work.

The book remains on the display stand

      Hi Ghaida,

      Yes, that’s pretty much any work for me to be proud of during my 4 years in college. Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s comments like yours that help me keep doing what I do 🙂

      One of the main reasons I started this blog is to show the whole world that this is from Saudi Arabia, and we’re not any less creative than the rest of the world.

      God bless you and wish you all the best ❤

    So my mission statement comment preceded my viewing of your book. I sense a growing maturity in your work. I particularly enjoy the pencil drawings that accompany your imagery. I see the double spread of eyes as being roomsize, so a person stands in the shadow of that huge image.

    Good job.

      Your saying that really means a lot to me. Thank you for taking the time to go over my work and give feedback! 🙂

      I absolutely love the idea of the eyes covering the walls of a room. With the right lighting and sound playing in the background, this would be a really interesting installation!
