About Waleed Marhoum
The two words that come to mind in describing Marhoum’s approach to his art are sensitivity and accuracy. Marhoum’s first love as a young boy was calligraphy and it remains a counterbalance and food for his soul visualising the alphabet in geometric forms. In 2005 however, Marhoum turned his attention to photography, which he used to show the way he perceives his community. In the end his true talent emerged with landscapes. Since then, Waleed Al Marhoum has enjoyed a favorable reception in the MENA region.
