“My paintings are for me a kind of rebellious reaction to all the fights that is going on all around the world. They are also an inner monolog about my despair towards this. My paintings invites the viewer to a dialog about my memories, full of color and unrest from my war tormented home country, Syria.”
In 1980 Adel Dauood was born in Al-Hasakah in Syria. He lived in Syria until 2014 where he moved to Vienna. When Adel Dauood creates his artwork he is inspired by his rough background. He has also told that he finds inspiration in the whole world in both good and bad ways. To Adel Dauood the message in his art is not something you can decide right on the spot; it is about what occurs between the painting and the viewer, which he thinks is very individual.
