This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in 1977, Palestinian artist, Oussama Diab has quickly gained rank within the Middle Eastern art scene. A graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus in 2002, he has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the region and has been honored for his work with several awards (including first prize) from the distinguished Young Artists exhibition in Syria.

Known for large colorful canvases that employ symbolist interpretations of current events, his recent series of paintings reflects a profound investigation into global political concerns while hinting at the artist's passion for international art.

Inspired by a wide spectrum of influences that span the length of art history, Diab's work has frequently presented a new take on graffiti-inspired Neo-Expressionism. Updating this painting style, his markings appear rapid and spontaneous with an overwhelming urgency, as his subjects exist in a nondescript setting. At once pop-infused and marked with a childlike innocence, his canvases are equally known for their serious subject matter, a juxtaposition that reflects the duality of his work.
