“[…]. This position of Abdalla – overcoming the times and cultures but at the same time rooted in both – expresses itself in the works which we show now for the first time here in Homburg. With marked structures and dominated by a language of shape and color, which is inspired by nature and human existence, you can always see in his works his background and the impulses of his own biography: In this way his powerful and poetic paintings are an invitation to get – apart from a calculated reality – nearer to the art of intuition.”
Mathias Beck, Gallery M. Beck, at the opening of an exhibition in Homburg a. d. Saar, Germany, July 2007.

“The artist Abdulhamid Abdalla is able to touch hearts […]. His paintings lead the viewer into an unknown world […]. To look at his art is like coming to a place you have dreamed of for a long time.”
Barbara Peveling, Ethnologist, at the opening of an exhibition in Cologne, Germany, November 2006.
