June 21st – July 21st 2021
Born and raised in Syria, Nasr began his art studies in 1984 as a young schoolboy. With sculpture as his primary medium of expression he continued to hone his skills at the University of Damascus, moving away from home for the first time in 1986. He turned the space constraint into an opportunity, changing his medium to painting. His unique interpretations of the culture and history of his homeland led to the creation of many large-scale artworks setting him apart from his contemporaries.
Here in the UAE, his art and creativity flourished, winning him many accolades in recent years.
The exhibition timing is especially poignant as Nasr will be moving to his new home in the United States of America.
“10 years after moving to Dubai I showcased a review of my work at the Al Shamsi Art House in Sharjah. And today as I start a new chapter, I am grateful to be getting the opportunity to say thanks to a city that has been my home for 21 years with this second review. These formative years cannot be measured by time but by success, love, and peace.” – Nasr Warour
