My name is Faisal Warsani and I am a tropical landscape artist. I divide my time between Chicago (my hometown) and Austin (where I am studying Architecture at the University of Texas). Painting is a way for me to transport myself to other places. My art brings me back to Hawaii, where part of my soul belongs. And it takes me to places I have yet to see, far out in the Pacific. I am inspired by the beauty of the sea and the swaying of palm trees. Whether I am creating waves or mountain ranges, I'm most content when I am captivated by nature's designs.
