Ghaylan Safadi
Born in 1977, contemporary artist Ghylan Safadi is a graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Damascus University. His works focus on the cartoon imagery in order to produce sketch-like social vignettes. The compositions are teeming with diverse figures, each playing a role in narrating these disquieting scenes. Whether the pictures touch upon social, political, environmental or even personal issues, they each tell a story and unveil an uneasy truth about the troubled climate of today’s world. Safadi’s works skilfully emanate a certain irony, as the childlike representations come into contrast with the obscure and mature themes.
His works have been shown in several solo-exhibitions in his hometown, and in  Beirut-Lebanon . He has also participated in numerous collective exhibitions, both locally and internationally, including the Royal Center in London, the Arab World Instituate in Paris, the Lighthouse Mobile Gallery in London, Paris, Berlin, Washington, Kuwait, Dubai,  Bahrain, and Tokyo. His works are housed in collections that span accross Damascus, Beirut, Paris, London, Dubai and the United States.
