01 Painting MIDDLE EASTERN ART, With Footnotes - 31

Said Elatab
Arab Woman
Oil on Canvas.
18 W x 24 H x 1 in
Private collection

Said Elatab, Arab American painter & photographer who considers himself the epileptic painter, always risking his life to work the best shots.  Said has painted while experiencing vision loss and head-banging pain from his epilepsy.

Elatab, in art history aspires to be like the great Princes in the world of Painting. One
would be Vincent Van Gogh

Said’s strength is in his drawings and fixation of creating an active drawing of the painful
women in his past life. Like Van Gogh who lost a ear, Elatab love for art is has the
same value as his life. This is a part of his unique style. Some pieces of his art have
been found to be culturally offensive because of the nudity. He runs the gambit in
history from a famous photographer to mad genius painter. 

Elatab has made his own brilliance and vibrancy achievements using his epilepsy and
mad character. He gives his canvases a gentle radiance for ladies, and then he burns
the mad creation as part of his pain and desire to display his dedication and love for his
drawings. Said’s art sometimes speaks with burning oils and musk to candle. Then art
becomes a sacrifice through pain. ”I always ask myself, is it reviving the feelings , or a
sense of anger smoldering?!!” said Said.

His expression of middle eastern experiences are found to be relatable by the many
customers who follow his art exhibits and continuously make known their love for his
work; be it photographer or paintings. More on Said Elatab
