About Ala


My works are visual narratives that are a simultaneous deconstruction and reconstruction of time and space – a visual glimpse of a crossroad where present day events meet history and mythology.

sic work...
thanks for putting this up.

Nice work which immediately calls attention to the aerial bombing of Ancient Iraq and the other the Firebird, Phoenix of the USAF fighter fleet.

Very SALT S.F.

VERY POWERFUL STUFF!!! LOVE IT!!!

dope work...

Beautiful art with a subtle message. Fabulous!

i love it it's so intresting love the newspaper background
very insprational

Feelings of viseral hatred towards how the west has treated the history of Arabic belief (writings in background). The Historical figures seem unblemished and unphased by the attacks or stoically defending themselves. Maybe a little too much pride - Dangerous

i think these are amazing, truly. a blend of hindu icon, myth, fine craftmanship and vision. i want more! bravo!

I love your work, very poetic but strong at the same time, and therefore highly ironic
