His first exhibition took place in Iraq and he began to show his work in Europe in 1996, with the collaboration of the Yemeni Cultural Center. In Yemen, he is already a well known artist, thanks to his numerous exhibitions in Sanaa.

The framings and hanging sets artistically designed in wrought iron will be part of the artwork itself. It also composes an original way of presenting an art show.
