Ahmad NAWASH (1934-2017)

 

Born in Jerusalem in 1934, Ahmad Nawash obtained a Diploma, with distinction, from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome in 1964. In 1970, he obtained a Diplôme Supérieur from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux, France. Since 1964, he has held numerous solo exhibitions in Amman, Baghdad, Jerusalem and Paris and has participated in a large number of group exhibitions in Jordan and abroad. Nawash has been awarded the Gold Medal of the Seventh Kuwait Biennale (1981), the Gold Medal of the Arab Artists' Association (1981) and the State Prize of Appreciation, Jordan (1990). .

 

"The work of Ahmad Nawash, known both in the Arab world and abroad, constitutes a comprehensive discourse in which he has opted for artistic integrity. He has quietly made his mark on the Jordanian art scene by insisting on honesty in his depictions. In the early phases of his work, he experimented, as did many of his contemporaries, with a variety of artistic directions, especially cubism and expressionism. However, although nature and the human figure remain foremost in his compositions, continuous and thorough research, sometimes academic, has lead him to what we might call a ‘spontaneous style'. As the artist himself has indicated, it is not the content itself which is spontaneous. What is presented is a particular vision of the world, its contradictions, disruptions and overall totality, transformed into complex aesthetic associations that are represented by altered human and animal figures."
