Born in Syria and raised in the United States, Mousa incorporates the cultural tensions of both countries into his practice, combining them with his own personal convictions.
 
Using color in unexpected ways, Mousa’s work is always framed by hope for greater equality, no matter how naive or impossible that might seem in the face of ever-challenging political and religious differences.

Mousa’s works are influenced by three religions in perpetual inter-conflict: Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Mousa draws from a well of inspiration bearing witness to his cultural heritage. Whether working with painting or mixed-media installation, his work deeply expresses his notions of justice and civil rights. As a result, many of his exhibitions are political, educational, thought-provoking, and sometimes controversial.

John Cauman, independent scholar, has written several catalog essays and is cocurator of the upcoming exhibition Matisse and American Art at the Montclair Art Museum, to open in February 2017. Oksana Salamatina is founder and owner of the Salamantina Gallery in New York.
