Based in Amman, Hamdi Shawqi is a visual artist, designer and illustrator with a background in graphic design. His work focuses on drawing, painting, and digital arts.
Over the last few years, Shawqi has begun to illustrate for poems and the written word. Through his art, he seeks to distort his surroundings in such a way as to locate the grey zone between concepts of the norm and the mutilated. "Trails of Thread," from which this work is taken, is a series of 24 works of ink on paper, and is Shawqi’s first solo exhibition.
