ARTIST STATEMENT

For the painter Tamim Sibai, born in Damascus 1991 and currently working and living in Berlin, art is a means to confront one’s own thoughts and feelings. Influenced by dialogue with the other(s), encountered behaviours, masks and mirror images, Tamim’s portraits reflect a mixture of the painted person’s image and the artist’s own feelings towards that person. His paintings style is colourful and he favors thick layers of oil paint as a technique. The colours are aggressive and applied out of free movement. Tamim’s paintings are lively and serious at the same time. Despite the wild and expressionistic tone, the figures transpire a certain sense of calm. Their faces are motionless and rigid.

He has shown his artworks in many exhibitions, including in Damascus, Berlin, and Khartoum. His work is included in a private collections in Beirut, Khartoum, Graz, Montreal, Paris and Berlin.
