Sabhan
ADAM
born 1972 -
Signed, Dated

145 X 150 cm.

Mixed Media on Canvas 2007
)

born in Al-Hassaka, Syria in 1972, self-taught artist painter Sabhan Adam has developed a highly recognizable

style of figurative painting that captures the darker side of man.

And yet despite the heavy content of his

canvases, his work remains widely popular.

As such he has exhibited throughout the Middle East and Europe

and is represented by both regional and international galleries.

Adam's paintings have been featured in several
recent auctions in the Gulf.
With grotesque faces, distorted frames and piercing eyes, his protagonists leap out from the canvas with a

startling visual agility.

Adam once explained the frequent appearance of this peculiar subject by stating: The
figures i paint have so many things in common with me—they look like me, they have the same head and the

same eyes as me.

i draw myself with everything that exists inside— the sadness, the misery, the shocking

things i have faced, the isolation, and the feeling of not belonging to this world.

These heads could be stuck on

any kind of animals' bodies.

i spread Sabhan Adam on all the canvas, so Adam exists in many shapes.
While his portraits do possess physical traits that are reminiscent of his own features, perhaps this form

of representation is really just a simple journey for the artist.

An existential path through which the self will
eventually become liberated, free from the burden of representation and from earthly things such as alienation
and sadness.
