About Ali’s Work
Ali’s work is bursting with colour, and brightens any space to which they are introduced. He is a Damascus-born artist, who has spent the formative years of his life in Beirut. His urban themes stem from his background as an architect, evident in the artist’s masterful handling of geometric lines and shapes to create his charming structures. His quaint everyday scenes are also drawn from his life experience, inspired by the scenes he observed in Beirut, which are evidently very close to his heart. Whether capturing a rainbow of sunlit houses, or a cheerful beach scene, a positive and uplifting feeling of nostalgia is created within each and every artwork.
Ali works with acrylic paint on canvas to achieve a crisp colour definition in his work. His paintings are steeped in a deep tradition of contemporary Lebanese art, with notable names like Shafic Abboud, Etel Adnan, and Huguette Caland sharing his bright and bold colour palette. Through his paintings, Ali is motivated to share with his audience, the sense of peace and nostalgia that he feels when he creates each piece.
Ali’s cheerful work is complementary to colourful interiors, and can equally be styled to introduce some fun and flair to more neutral home designs. His large artworks are designed to make an impact on their space, through the artist’s intuitive balancing of geometric shapes with more fluid and expressive features. Ali’s modern graphic and geometric style complements a range of contemporary interiors, but his quaint scenery speaks to more traditional themes and interests, all the same. His art style is referential in inspiration, yet wholly unique in its execution, and makes for a truly distinctive and aesthetically pleasing collection.
