I am a Syrian-German artist and art historian born 1978 in Damascus, i live and work since 2005 in Germany.
I graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus, Syria in 2001 and i am an Art History PhD candidate at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany.
Commuting between Practice and Research i try to proof that artmaking and art history-making can coexist in a succesful dynamic. That is why i works between these two Worlds: As a Published Illustrator for various museum’s and other Cultural Institutions like „Landesmuseum Natur und Mensch“ in Oldenburg, Grimmwelt-Museum in Kassel and documenta 14. I am also Involved in the Making process of different museum‘s Projects and it’s educational public programms.
I worked as an art mediator for documenta14, Museum Fridericianum, and Grimwelt-Museum in Kassel.
Over the last three years i started to examine the world between imagination and reality. This world is forming the foundation of content for her paintings and works on paper. My Artworks are claiming to create absurd scenery performed in what seems like everyday life and featuring the element of surprise in an unexpected depictions. Although i am fond of depicting Objects and landscapes i understand myself primarily as a painter of figures and faces. I combine the drawing and painting techniques in my artworks and work with a variety of media, ranging from Pencils, charcoals, pastels, colored markers, watercolor and acrylics. As artwork surface i tend to use either paper or wood panels. Participated in many group shows in Europe.
