Biography Fateh Moudarres
Born in Aleppo, Syria, Fateh Moudarres (1922-1999) was a prolific modernist pioneer with an extensive career
of working in mixed media and teaching.
After a brief period of utilizing realist and surrealist techniques in the
1950s, he traveled to Italy to attend the Accademia di belle Arti* in Rome. Returning to Damascus in 1960, he
re-emerged on the Syrian art scene with a personal style that he described as "surrealistic* and figurative with a
strong element of abstraction."
Becoming deeply committed during this time, especially after 1967, Moudarres
took up highly political subject matter, often depicting the difficult daily realities that were faced by those
living in rural areas or on the margins of society.
