How to Host a Dinner Party
Omar Najjar is known for his style that he describes as “structured chaos.” His paintings come across as a modern take on impressionism, their quotidian subject matter is elevated to the sublime, providing a profound, if understated, view of the human experience. Expertly manipulating oil, pastels and charcoal, Najjar’s instantly recognisable work is characterised by broad brush strokes that give a suggestion to the story without giving the details fully.
