Safwan Dahoul (Syria)

Safwan Dahoul has made a series of paintings with the same title, Dream, which examine the most intimate moments of the human experience: slumber, companionship, solitude and death. The artist sees the work as being elements of a personal biography and of expressive of the relationship between the individual and space. Dahoul's paintings have a minimalist pallette indicative of the lack of colour in the war-torn streets of Syria and other areas of the Middle East.

Born in 1961 in Hama, Syria, Safwan Dahoul lives and works in Dubai. Dahoul attended the Suheil Al Ahdab Center of Plastic Arts and the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus. In 1987 he received a scholarship to study abroad from the Ministry of Higher Education and relocated to Belgium, achieving his Doctorate from the Higher Institute of Plastic Arts in Mons in1997. His work is held in numerous private and public collections including the Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris; The Samawi Collection, Dubai; The Farjam Collection, Dubai; and the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development, Kuwait.
