Biography

Translation in progress

Besher Koushaji’s background in fine arts and graphic design combines beautifully on his canvases to produce work that is intricate, contemporary and new. Each piece has several layers of positive and negative planes that enrich the canvas and create depth and complexity. While the work is fresh and current, there are hints of classic Arabic influences from calligraphy, to Damascene architectural details, and in his more recent work sunny palettes that remind the viewer of the best of the Arab world layered over faces from his past. Each piece has been worked intensely yet looks as effortless as a breath of fresh air. His images consist of several layers, where he shifts and alter the image to his liking; he breaks the image into lines and sections creating a distortion of the original subject. He started with the buildings reflecting his memories of Syria and lately he has been infusing the portraits of those people that he left behind. Besher currently resides in Jordan.
