Marwan Kassab Bachi (* 1934 Damascus, Syria. Lives in Berlin, Germany) is well known for his unique depictions of human faces. In some instances they are well-articulated representations of individuals with distinct features, while at other times, individual traits are abstracted, turning faces into anonymous masks.
This exhibition is the very first one in the GCC to showcase a range of Marwan’s work within a single venue. It includes large-scale oil on canvas paintings, aquarelle works on paper, as well as etchings and quick sketches executed in pencil.
Topographies of the Soul. Individual exhibition, Barjeel Art Foundation at Maraya Art Centre, Sharjah, 6 December 2014 - 6 February 2015.
