Nael Hanna was born in Nineva, Northern Iraq. He was awarded a scholarship by the Ministry of Education, Bagdad to study in Britain and was accepted for a degree in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanston College of Art in Dundee in 1983. He has travelled and exhibited widely throughout the world, but settled in Angus in North East Scotland and developed a great passion for the area’s coastlines, which feature heavily in his work.
Hanna’s abstract style is displayed often in his dramatic and harsh depictions of the Scottish coastline. His strong brushstrokes create very textured and striking scenes when combined with his brooding use of colour to represent the elements of the Scottish landscape.
