Under the patronage of HRH Princess Alia Tawfiq Tabbaa, Nabad has the pleasure to invite you to the opening of an exhibition of works by Syrian artist Boutros Al Maari entitled Against Monotony

The exhibition is held in the context of
Amman Design Week 2019: Possibilities

As usual, Boutros Al Maari does not work on one subject, but gives his brush and his ideas the freedom to choose, thus breaking the monotony and surprising us every time by combining the unusual with, occasionally, the contradictory in the same artwork. He attempts to avoid depicting the Syrian tragedy, but in fact, it inhabits details that cannot elude the viewer. In this exhibition at Nabad, Al Maari celebrates the bull, standing alone conversing with one or two marginal characters who actually reveal the whole story.

Born in 1968 in Damascus, Boutros al-Maari graduated with a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris in 2006. In addition to being a prolific painter, Al-Maari is the writer and illustrator of nine children’s books, published in Paris. He has held fourteen solo exhibitions in Paris, Beirut, Dubai and Damascus and has participated in numerous group shows in Europe and the region. A Maari’s works are currently part of an exhibition entitled, “Hommage d’artistes a Notre-Dame” at the museum of the Institut du monde Arabe in Paris. Al Maari lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.

The exhibition continues through 6 November 2019
