Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Fouad Dahdouh
Although a prominent sculptor, Fouad Dahdouh has also produced a series of mixed-media canvases on which he intends to have inviting textures, highly stylized figures and layers of color.  His complex division of space, in which planes overlap and perspective is distorted.  With these obvious references to the three dimensionality of sculpture, Dahdouh's subjects are placed in unspecified settings, an element of his narrative that suggest an enigmatic aura and allow the viewer to interpret the work in a variety of ways.

This points to an artist that creates with internationalism in mind, as his compositions remain free of a recognizable identity, leaving his work open-ended and unrestrained. His diverse style is the result of an art education that spans continents, as he holds diplomas, a master degree and a PhD in art and art history from institutions in Syria, France and Poland.

Born in Damascus in 1959, Dahdouh has taught in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Damascus University in 1993 and has represented Syria in international exhibitions, including "Damas, Paris: Regarde Croises," an exhibition of Syrian art that was held at the Arab World Institute in Paris in 2008. In addition to a long exhibition history, he has erected several public monuments in Syria and has designed a number of official medals. An award-winning artist, his sculptures have been recognized by such notable organizations as the Lattakia biennial.
