Walaa Dakak

Born in: 1978

Syrian Arab Republic

Biography
Translation in progress

Born in 1978 in Damascus, Syria, Walaa Dakak holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Damascus. Later on, he studied Contemporary Art and New Media at the University of Paris La Sorbonne.

His minimalist yet cautious figures, marked by their vague silhouettes and featureless faces - except for wide set eyes that stare out anxiously and suspiciously at the viewer - to the psychological depth captured in his works.

Using bold primary colours that act as background to his black and white figures ­– oftentimes using only monochromatic tones ­– Dakak’s simple yet effective painterly style is easily distinguishable.

His installation work "Paranoia Eye and I" was included in the exhibition Syrie: Cris – Action (2014) at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris.

He is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Paris La Sorbonne in Art and Sciences focusing on aesthetic art.
