Fouad Dahdouh was born in 1960 in Damascus, Syria. He received a Phd from Frostwav University in Bologna, Italy and has been a Professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Damascus, since 1993. His works reflect his humorous and playful nature. The female silhouette is a central theme in his melodic, rainbow-rich paradises, which communicates with the colour materials to the limit of the abstract. Although his spontaneous forms are enriched with the love of everyday pleasures, they cannot hide the latent sadness.
Dahdouh has held many international exhibition including a participation to 56th Biennale di Venezia. He was the recipient of the First prize of sculpture "Banally al mahaba Award'', Latakia Biennal 2001. Dahdouh constructed several monuments in Syria and is the creator of many medals for different occasions.
