About Nasser Hussein
Lives in Germany
Figuring deep in the work of Nasser Hussein is the idea of loneliness or the alleviation of it. He depicts the solitary individual experiences in life, even in the passing moments of the day that one hardly remembers. His works impart the emotional sensation of being completely alone and when on occasion there are two figures, it feels as if they were living in their own bubble, in unison together.
