New York-based artist Walid was born in Algeria  and grew up in Paris where he studied at the prestigious École des Beaux Arts de Paris, and L’atelier Chardon Savard. Inspired by one's personal journey through life, Sad's paintings represent the inevitable transition from childhood to adulthood with all the challenges that might come from it.

Sadʼs work is a meditation on life, Concerned with the translation of the inexpressible onto canvas, these ephemeral moments are captured through brushstrokes and palette knife, where each feels is transposed onto a canvas, embodying curiosity, excitement, and anxiety as those are the sentiments of Walid.
