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 Hama, Syria in 1961, Safwan Dahoul has recently become one of the Arab world’s more prominent painters. After graduating from the Faculty of Fines Arts in Damascus at the top of his class in 1983, Dahoul went on to receive a scholarship to study abroad from the Ministry of Higher Education in 1987. Choosing to travel to Belgium due to its rich artistic heritage, particularly its 16th century Flemish school of painting, he obtained a doctorate from the Higher Institute of Plastic Arts in Mons in 1997.

Since then he has participated in international art fairs and solo and group exhibitions throughout the Middle East, Europe and the US. Dahoul’s style of painting has been inspired by a vast range of art history, including ancient Assyrian and Pharaonic art and European masters such as Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Bruegal the Elder.

Elements of international Modernism and Post-war painting such as the Cubist inspired monumentality of Picasso and the sociopolitical foreboding of Francis Bacon can also be detected. Yet the Syrian artist’s canvases demonstrate a profound originality, namely the formation of his aesthetic through the detailed exploration of a haunting female subject and the continuous awakening of the subconscious.
