Faika Al Hassan
Courtyard Gallery > Faika Al Hassan Faika Al Hassan She was born in Manama, Bahrain. She graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Baghdad and went on to pursue a steady job, devoting her spare time to art which was inspired from the Iraq of 1970's when ballet, dancing, theatres and galleries flourished. It wasn't until the early 1980's that she finally quit her accounts job and pursued art full time and immersed herself in various art courses. Her early works centered on expressive depictions of women in general, with the body taking centre stage. Since then she has shifted to a more experimental approach, in which seemingly innumerable, small human figures inhabit large and anonymous spaces. While not overtly political, her paintings at times contain allusions to the politics of power and violence.
