Haafiza Sayed’s work is a synthesis of contemporary realism, landscape study, and abstract. She uses the subtlety of lines, textures, and symbols to convey complex, often surreal themes through simple imagery. She likes to incorporate traces of realism into semi-abstract landscapes, to convey the essence of the place and capture its moment of fleeting magic. Her surrealist work explores the emotional and mental spheres of human existence and shared experiences, often reflective and spiritual in nature.
