Painter Nidal Khaddour uses his brush to create work that highlights beautification in its essence by drawing upon unconventional inspirations, mainly the impact of the socio-political state around him. The paintings see the unification of geometric abstraction with colours reminiscent of Impressionist paintings.
Nidal Khaddour seeks to generate temporal and spacial intellectual worlds in the form of geometry, restoring a legacy that helps shed light on two things - space and emptiness. The artist is able to play more than one role in order to be able to transform the colour matter into expressions of exceptional abstract aesthetic structure that generates the differences of one element and its divisions across spaces and assemblies that determine the understanding of each recipient of abstraction and metaphorical generation and its representation in expression in form and content.
