Fadi HamwiAl-Hamwi was born in 1986 in Damascus, Syria, graduated from the faculty of Fine Arts, Damascus in 2010, and now lives and works in Berlin, Germany

In his series of paintings Society – 180 degree he uses hybrid animal/human figures complicit in the everyday brutality of wartime. They are horrors of war personified, captured in ordinary acts such as giving a gift or answering the phone. The absence of background creates a feeling of flatness, both spatial and emotional. He explains “My art explores the lack of humanity in the Syrian war. It is meant to expose men and women to their bone structure.”
