An artist and photographer of Iraqi descent, based in Auckland, New Zealand, his birthplace. Having studied Architecture at the University of Auckland and Fine Arts at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design, his practice develops an approach to architectural photography which seeks to abstract design, material and light into geometric compositions. As part of his oeuvre, he has made works and projects in mixed media and digital art. These preliminary works delve into his interests in history, archaeology, mythology and language which parallel that of his current photographic works.
In 2018, Saeed was awarded the Emerging Artist Award, at the Riley Consultants Members Merit Awards and Exhibition at Lake House Arts Centre. Most recently, his work “Text Experiment” has been acquired by the James Wallace Arts Trust.
