Omar Zeidan is a young mixed media Lebanese artist who works predominantly in painting and digital media. Zeidan’s unique style borrows techniques from digital art as well as music and sound composition, owing to his experience as a techno composer. His digital print work focuses on the minute details of flowers, blades of grass and other textured surfaces, to create highly saturated coloured images that appear almost kaleidoscopic on the canvas’ surface. Similarly, his electric and vibrant oil paintings are characterised by frenetic lines in turn creating an abstraction of movement and colour. The artist’s passion for art was undoubtedly shaped and nurtured by his mother, Salwa Zeidan, a notable Lebanese sculptor and painter. His works are included in various private collections and in public venues around the region and the Middle East, including the Rocco Forte Hotel, the Grand Hilton in Abu Dhabi and Counterpoint hospital to name few. In addition he held three solo shows and numerous group exhibitions at the Salwa Zeidan Gallery, including seven shows in Abu Dhabi Art Fair and Bahrain Art Fair.
