Biography Nazir Ismail
Born in Damascus, Syria in 1948, Nazir Ismail creates highly expressionist compositions which range from portraits of disfigured
figures that are as otherworldly as they are mysterious to semi-romanticized landscapes. Having trained
privately, he began exhibiting in public venues in Damascus in 1966, joining a group of Syrian artists that would
initiate the transition from the modern period of art to the adoption of contemporary modes of representation
that took concurrent global trends into consideration.
During this time, like a number of his colleagues, he
employed a symbolist approach to painting that often found inspiration in traditional Syrian art forms. In 1971
he was given his first solo exhibition at the ArabicAyyam Auctions
