Saudi artist and filmmaker who bridges heritage, culture and craftsmanship in his work.

Mohammad A lfaraj is an artist and freelance filmmaker born and raised in Al Hassa. His hometown fed into his interest in nature and ecology, and led him to work within a multidimensional practice, from video and photography to installations and writing.

A socio-environment activist at heart, Mohammed’s work also often uses natural materials found in his hometown and combines them with children games and stories from people working the land, as an attempt to create states of co-existence between man and nature with an undertone of hope.

Al Faraj’s work has been featured in Dubai Film Festival; the Saudi Film Festival where he was awarded first place for his documentary Lost within the student category; Jeddah Arts 21,39; and at Athr Gallery, Jeddah.
