Ahmed Alkarkhi

Art is not simply works of art; It is the spirit that knows beauty, that has music in its soul and the color of sunsets in its handkerchief, that can dance on a flaming world   and make the world dance too I don't have one favorite place, but I love anywhere that I can be near water - to see it flowing meditatively and hear it's music. Being near water is my place of peace and calm
