Sometimes art doesn’t have to have a definitive meaning. Sometimes it’s best meant to be appreciated for what it is – open to interpretation and reflection. This is especially true of the form of abstract expression, where meaning can take on new shapes of its own. 

It’s with this in mind that Temsa7 cartoonist Abdulaziz Yousef shares with us some introspective abstractions meant to evoke emotion. Check them out here! 

These two abstract self-portraits of the artist above were painted during two times of ‘shocking crisis’ in his life.
