Highlighting a new body of work by the rising painter, the forthcoming exhibition will reflect a shift in the artist’s ubiquitous subject matter.

A female protagonist who is shown in various settings and scenarios establishes the narrative of Orabi’s latest series. This time she appears in both childhood and adulthood. As though shown through the many stages of life, she is depicted as a daughter, an adolescent, a seductress, a lover and a demure woman.

About the artist:
Noteworthy among a dynamic generation of young Syrian artists, Orabi has exhibited frequently at home and abroad in venues across the region and has participated in collective shows and festivals in North America, Europe and Asia, most notably at Art Hong Kong in 2009, where his oversized canvases wowed international viewers. Through widely acclaimed solo exhibitions at Ayyam Gallery’s Damascus and Dubai outposts and several successful sales with Ayyam Auctions, Orabi has quickly become a favorite among Middle Eastern collectors.
