Based in London and Oxfordshire, Omar Obaid is an abstract artist who creates original paintings direct from his studio. His bold brush strokes, which are inspired by everyday life, feature as part of a growing collection of distinctive pieces, and he also specialises in custom work and commissions for private and commercial clients. Omar’s abstracts provide stunning centrepieces for homes and offices across the world.

A talented painter, Omar’s career had been heading in a very different direction, until he resigned as a a Senior Associate at the New York Times. “It was a bold move but I had to wake up and pursue my dream,” he says. “I was fortunate to realise my path early, and with much hard work and determination, I achieved my ambition.”

Titled Summer House, it is a colourful piece filled with detail and visible texture inspired by the changing seasons and a warmer climate.
