Biography

Born in Homs in 1947, Abdulqader Azzouz graduated from the Department of Painting, Faculty of Fine Arts, Damascus University; in 1971. He won several awards and studied art in Homs. He held several solo exhibitions in Damascus, Homs, and Algiers. He also participated in many group exhibitions and events in Damascus and Aleppo, as well as a mobile exhibition in Sweden and an event in Sharjah. In most of his paintings, Azzouz uses oil colours to depict silent nature and the human body. His work shows a tendency towards abstract that manifests in simple shapes and colour shades. This tendency, however, is occasionally combined with a focus on details.
