Born in Damascus in 1934, Marwan Kassab-Bachi is a Syrian artist living and working in Berlin. He has been actively practicing since the 1950s and is particularly well known for his unique depictions of human figures and faces. This exhibition, being the very first one in the GCC to showcase a range of Marwan’s work within a single venue, aims at introducing regional public to the varied spectrum of Marwan’s oeuvre. Here, visitors are able to see the artist’s large-scale oil on canvas paintings, aquarelle works on paper, as well as etchings and quick sketches executed in pencil.
