Sabhan Adam

Biography

Self-taught artist Sabhan Adam depicts expressionistic distortions of the human form in this large and diverse selection of mixed media works on canvas.

His subjects seem to live in a place that tears the watcher out of complacency into an uncomfortable plane of existence, where any reference to beauty depends on your level of discomfiture.

His polemic is human and generalized rather than strictly local, making him a truly unique artist in the Arab world.

Sabhan Adam was represented at the 2011 Venice Biennale and his works are part of public and private collections worldwide.
