Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Syria in 1954, sculptor Lutfi Romhein is known for his extensive meditations on female and male forms through a range of mediums.  After completing his studies in Syria, he opened a workshop in Damascus, sculpting in stone and wood while regularly exhibiting at home and abroad.  In 1981 he traveled to Carrara, Italy where he took courses at the Academy of Fine Arts.  Years later he would continue to return to Carrara, where he works with fellow sculptor Boutros Romhein in providing professional training for new and established sculptors.

While he continues to work in wood and marble, he has also taken up sculpting in metal and is interested in all formats, both large and small.  Never one to be limited in his scope, he is simultaneously a respected furniture maker, creating his own designs of olive wood chairs and tables as he investigates the figurative and abstract components of creating sculptural beauty and strength.  Recently Romhein was highly praised by critics and the public alike for a new set of monumental sculptures that were installed in downtown Dubai.  Created in Italy, “Together” (2011) features a man and women in black granite and white marble that evokes the ying and yang relationship of balance that is found in Chinese philosophy.  Placed strategically within a busy thoroughfare, these 4.25-meter high works reflect the traditional dress of the Gulf, emphasizing the silhouettes of customary dress and how its muted palette stands in relation to the urban landscape.
