Fadi al-Hamwi (b.1986, Damascus) lives and works in Berlin. He studied oil and mural painting at the Damascus Academy of Fine Arts (2010-2006). Al-Hamwi concerns himself with lending physical shape to the human experience of war, His practice began investigating the latent violence in societal constructs and evolved as actual violence began to take place around him in Damascus in 2011. He explores the relationship between dormant and actualised expressions of violence and desire, as well as the dialogue between construction and destruction and revealing a deeply personal/social process of reckoning.
