Omar Al Hassan

Omar Al Hassan Profile Picture

Omar Al Hassan is a Syrian-Canadian artist with roots in Ras Al Khaimah and a background in engineering, which he studied in Vancouver, Canada. It was during his time in Vancouver that Omar discovered a newfound passion for art, captivated by the idea of bringing life to a blank canvas. He found inspiration in the lush forests and pristine wilderness of British Columbia, and today, he creates breathtaking landscape paintings using oil paints, thick gestural brushstrokes, and a harmonious mix of complementary colors.

At the heart of Omar's artistic philosophy is his belief in the transformative power of observation and a constant sense of curiosity. He is inspired by artists like Leonardo Da Vinci and John Singer Sargent, who lived life with a sense of wonder and saw art as a form of meditation and a means of connecting with the world and oneself. As Frederick Frank once said, "Seeing/Drawing is a way of meditation, a way of getting into intimate touch with the visible world around us, and through it… with ourselves."

Omar's paintings are more than just representations of the world around him, they are a testament to the beauty and majesty of nature, and a celebration of the power of observation and wonder. Through his art, Omar invites viewers to pause, to see the world in a new light, and to appreciate the simple yet stunning details that often go unnoticed. His work is a tribute to the beauty of the natural world and a reminder of the importance of cherishing the world we live in.
