Khaled Khreis

Jordan 1955. Lives and works in Amman.

"The artist has to be connected with his environment and surroundings, and in my case, this connection is indirectly reflected in my works."

"I do not align my taste in art with a particular school, I like genuine works of art, whether figurative or abstract."

"I find pleasure in minimalism, whether on the level of form or color."

 "I came closer to the world of Sufism in Spain and consider the artistic process as a ritual ceremony."
