NEW PROJECT: Creative Havens: Syrian Artists And Their Studios
Creative Havens: Syrian Artists And Their Studios is a project granting us rare access to the studios of the greatest contemporary Syrian artists – or artists of Syrian descent – living and working both in and outside Syria today. It provides a compelling behind-the-scenes glimpse into their artistic processes: a snapshot of extreme creativity, passionate experimentalism, and sometimes also chaos.
The elaborate Website brims with specially commissioned photographs – portraits, artists at work, places of inspiration, studio environments – and keen-witted interviews. The artists not only open the doors to their studios, but also grant access into their thoughts. They express their opinions in all aspects of contemporary Syrian art, thereby painting a vivid picture of what it means to be a Syrian artist today.
