I am a Syrian artist based in Stockholm. I graduated from the University of Damascus 2005-2009, with a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts-Mural Painting. I have been working with Oil painting, Illustration, Sculpture, and Installation Art for the last 13 years.
I have a strong interest in human beings, and they are my favorite subject, both in drawing and painting. In my portraits I try to reveal what’s hidden behind the face.
During my studies at the University, I attended various workshops on multiple techniques, such as Plastic Art in cement, ceramics and graffiti, and experienced working with different techniques. Oil painting, however, has remained my favorite technique since with oil painting color manipulation is very easy and it has great flexibility where a wide range of varied effects can be produced. In the same manner, changing the surface can give the work different depth and texture.
