Artist’s Story

Anas Homsi, combines abstract expressionism and portraiture to make up his artistic genre / Since his career’s inception, he utilizes a colourful palette with gestural brush strokes that has cemented a signature style / Homsi has been interested in exploring a spectrum of emotions fuelled by war, placement, displacement and the implications on the human mind / The artist expresses his inspirations through his experiences of uprooting and all that surrounds it from his journey following the war in Syria / Homsi has participated in several collective and solo exhibitions in Lebanon and Europe / He is a member of the Syrian Plastic Artists’ Union / Since his recent move to Berlin, Homsi has participated in a group and solo show and continues to work out of his Berlin studio investigating his new surroundings vis a vis his previous experiences/

Artist Statement

I communicate little sense of a specific place or time. It’s more about trying to capture the atmosphere of a memory, not a particular moment. Through the way I paint I try to get back to that state of childhood – a bit spontaneous, without thinking about the result. It’s a sort of relief.

My paintings are highly textured splashes and daubs of bright, almost luminous colors topped with roughly sketched figures. I usually start with sketches but never turn a sketch into a painting. My paintings are more complex, layered versions of my little pen sketches, most of which feature strange figures, some with huge heads and no bodies, others with bodies and arms but no legs. There are no specific people which I work on. Each time is different, each painting is from a different daydream. I feel that the more I add layers, the more I give the painting, an artistic value from my imagination and memory…
