Meet // Sabhan Adam

March 24, 2009

A conversation at work reminded me of Syrian artist Sabhan Adam. I was fortunate enough to view a few of his pieces in person, and I have to say that they are just phenomenal. He creates his characters from nightmares, and its not hard to see how. The general feeling is dark and eerie, with images that will stick in your mind for a long time. 

“The figures I paint have so many things in common with me—they look like me, they have the same head and the same asian 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.”
