Art Description

Painting: Watercolor on Paper.

"How you see yourself"

I started this painting with no plan and let myself be guided by music of Robert Glasper and Seinabo Sey.
I painted myself with my grandmothers in the background, Marlies (my German grandmom) and Fada (my Jordanian grandmom).

I wanted to express how I am me, but I am also my lineage.

In the painting I included little elements of Rio de Janeiro , hence the little palm trees and in the top right you can see the 'Arcos da Lapa' (the arches of Lapa, that I used to cross with the yellow tram so many times in the 2 months I was there during 2006)

It's in Rio that I first started to look for myself, all by myself.
