About Asaad Arabi

A prominent art theorist and critic Asaad Arabi (1941) is well known as an early innovator of contemporary painting in the Arab world. Born in Damascus, Asaad Arabi graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts, where he studied under the Italian artist and instructor Guido La Regina, leader of a new abstractionist school. Following his move to Paris in 1975, Arabi received a diploma in painting from the Higher Institute of Fine Arts, and later earned a PhD in Aesthetics from the prestigious Sorbonne University. His subsequent studies, essays and critiques have been widely published in both French and Arabic, elevating the painter to the rank of prominent art theorist.

Childhood memories of Damascus serve as an wellspring of inspiration for Asaad Arabi, his lifelong fascination with Damascus: familiar theme in his repertoire and one he repeatedly comes back throughout his long career. Arabi’s paintings consists of strong sense of nostalgia for his homeland. In this captivating collection Arabi’s works capture the essence of Damascus which he lived in and still lives in him. Arabi utilizes his palette to interpret the sounds of his city's alleyways and run-down dwellings. With powerful brushstrokes and great precision, his abstract paintings depict humans and animals against a backdrop of encompassing, exaggerated color. These houses occur frequently in Arabis compositions, where an emphasis on the ancient city fixes ideas of a vanishing past.
