Artist Profile, Abdel Kader Arnaout

Painting by Abdel Kader ArnaoutAbdul Kader Arnaout was one of the leading Syrian figures in the modernist movement. However, his quest for modernism has never lead him to sever his links with his Arab heritage

He was born in Damascus in 1936 and died there in 1992. He studied fine arts in Rome and decorative arts in Paris. Arnaout does not depend solely on lines, figures and symbols, he uses colour abstractions to express his deepest thoughts, and introduce his Arab cultural roots through overlaps, gradiances, transparencies and shadings of colours.

On his return from Paris, he introduced balance and coherence to his paintings. Static symmetry and abstract expressionism replaced his previous symbols-laden poetic style. Arnaout was not only a painter of high distinction, but was also, arguably, the godfather of Syrian graphic design.

His posters are so famous in Syria, a fact that gave any public event in the country a special artistic value, thanks to its accompanying posters designed by this gifted artist. Arnaout was also a multifaceted man.

He wrote poetry and short stories, taught at the faculty of fine arts in Damascus, and had a keen interest in music. However, he is most remembered by his family and friends for his sense of humour and funny anecdotes.
