Mehyar Sawas

Having earned a diploma from the Damascus Technical Institute of Applied Art, I have practiced as an artist, sculptor, designer, and painter in Damascus, Istanbul, and currently Vienna.
Through my participation in exhibitions, symposiums, and creation of Sabadalla group, I strive to collaborate with other young like-minded artists interested in making their own business of art.

I invite you to enjoy having a look at some of my artworks.

I will be glad to hear from you and answer your questions.

If you are interested in ordering your own artwork, please contact me directly on my contact information below.

The dynamics of the pieces make me wait for them to finish their movement and in some cases even to fear that they do. Partially I attribute this powerful effect to the materials used. The wire makes the sculptures seem flexible, changeable. What they are now seems to have required that they were different before. After having been burnt the usually colorful and soft isolation material looks rough and raw.

Thoughts

The spectrum of human emotions fascinates me. What pushes us to keep moving forward? As humans we endure suffering and seek the comfort of others.
My artwork expresses an exploration of human emotions through my subconscious use of shaping, curves, edges, and textures, with which my aim is to create harmony for the eyes of the receiver.
