Biography  
Azad Hamy


Biography from the Archives of askART

Born in Qamishli, Syria in 1979, Kurdish artist Azad Hamy graduated from the Adham Ismail Institute of Fine Arts in 2003.  Since then he has participated in exhibitions and workshops throughout Syria, Iraq, Turkey, the UAE, and Yemen.

In 2011, his paintings were featured at the Paris Museum of Modern Art.

Hamy has been honored by art organizations in Saudi Arabia, Istanbul and Canada. His work is housed in collections in the Middle East, Europe and North America.

Hamy's recent series of cockfight paintings have been showcased in Syria with much acclaim. Utilizing the primordial nature of this act as a point of departure for the exploration of human conflict, the artist captures the relationship between good and evil, suspending his compositions in moments of tranquility and chaos with philosophical underpinnings.

Inspired by the rural environment of his birthplace, he employs a muted palette of earth tones that works to accentuate the abrupt movements of his elegant (albeit doomed) subjects.
