Biography

Born in Jisr Al Shughour in 1958, Jamil Kasha graduated from the Department of Sculpture, Faculty of Fine Arts, Damascus University; in 1985. He held solo exhibitions in Latakia, Aleppo, Netherlands, and Damascus. Kasha uses several raw materials in his sculptures. He depicts human portraits and elements from his environment; such as fish, birds, and mountain beetles. His depictions, however, are rather symbolic and in discovery of aesthetics of raw materials. As such, his sculptures are, in a way, an exploration of life within stone.
