About

Ever since I can remember, art has been in my blood. I began drawing portraits of family and friends as a child. I was creative at heart, and creating art was already a passion by the time I was in my early teens.

Years later, while I was working for The New York Times in London as a Senior Advertising Associate, my wife encouraged me to start exhibiting my paintings and selling my art.

I remember preparing for my first exhibition and hanging my paintings, and I was so delighted at how quickly my paintings started selling.

The moment my life changed forever was when I became a father. I decided it was the right time to pursue my dream and I resigned from my role at NYTimes and became a full-time independent artist. I never looked back!

I am extremely grateful that I have been able to live my passion and I can paint every single day in my studio creating original abstract paintings and work on exciting new projects with my clients.

Omar enjoys creating large artwork filled with movement and colour. His abstract work is inspired by everyday life. This can be seen in his artwork from the strong gestures and movements in his brush strokes.

As well as producing new paintings to add to his collection, Omar works on large custom paintings and commissions with private and commercial clients across the world to create unique abstracts for home and office space.

Omar’s work is currently in private and commercial collections round the world including major art collectors of Omar’s paintings in New York, LA, Paris and London to name a few.
