The principle concern in Edward Shahda’s painting is the human. His process however focuses on colour and juxtaposition. The figures he conceives are unconventional and expressive in their occupation of space. His dynamic compositions incorporate symbolism and mythology while tackling contemporary themes and images from the real world.


Edward Shahda uses various techniques and means of expression: acrylic, oil painting, collages, Indian ink drawings on rice paper.

Since 1980, Shahda has exhibited his work in several countries. The artist participated in the "Modern miniature" and "Women and war" exhibitions in Damas in 2000 and 2001. His work was presented during the Biennial of Alexdria in 2003 in Geneva in 2005 for the "Exhibition of the six artists" and the during the international Biennial of China in 2005 and 2008. Two of his paintings were selected for the International Biennial of Beijing.

In 2008, "Damas vu de Paris" was exhibited at the Institut du monde arabe in Paris.
