Hatem Imam


The root of Hatem's practice explores various themes of time and space. His landscapes are often visual interpretations of the self while retaining an otherworldly implication. In 'La Vitrine' Hatem transformed the space into an abstract scene challenging the dimensions of the space whilst conforming to them.
