فيصل عبدالعزيز الخريجي فنان تشكيلي سعودي عشق الفن من صغره وتعلمه من خلال الممارسة، له اسلوب خاص ومتفرد في الرسم يمزج بين التكعيبية والسريالية، مع وجود دائم لطابع أونمط من تاريخ وتراث الثقافة السعودية
Born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Faisal practiced drawing from time to time but got more serious about it in Boston, where he obtained his Bachelor's degree there. Faisal draws his inspirations from art masters such as Picasso, Matisse, Gorge Condo, and many others, and believes that there is no right or wrong when it comes to art.
As his techniques improved, he started creating his own painting style which mixes culture, cubism, and surrealism to create distinct characteristic portraits that reflects his culture in a different yet beautiful way. His paintings can be described as either calming, disturbing, simple, or sophisticated, and that’s why Faisal prefers listening to the thoughts and explanations of the viewers of his work before explaining the original idea behind the paintings, and he hopes that one day he can represent his culture through his art globally for the whole world to see and learn the history and beauty of the Saudi culture.
