Osama bin Laden’s Son Is a Painter

The desert dunes and rolling seas of Omar’s childhood are to be found in Jeddah, a port city studding Saudi Arabia’s western coast. As a boy, he spent his early years ricocheting between a tiny apartment in the city’s centre and the wide-open country of the bin Laden family farm, where his father kept horses, goats, and gazelles. It was from a young age that he demonstrated a penchant for painting.
