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.
