Adel Dauood (SY)

“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.” 

Adel Dauood

In 1980 Adel Dauood was born in Al-Hasakah in Syria. He lived in Syria until four years ago where he moved to Vienna. When Adel Dauood creates his artwork he is inspired by his background. He has also told that he finds inspiration from 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.

When you look at Adel Dauoods paintings an extreme dynamic overwhelms you. His paintings are full of life and colors, which makes his paintings vivid. Despite of Adel’s abstract way of painting his artwork contain motifs that you as a viewer only can guess what imagine. Because of Adel Dauood inspiration from all around the world there is many different energies in his paintings. His playful brush stroke and his use of powerful colors create moods in the paintings that you can use a lot of time to absorb as a viewer. Adel Dauood is an artist that we are very proud to present in our gallery. It is paintings that you can keep on discovering every time you look at them.
