Nabad presents Boutros al-Maari's paintings in a solo exhibition for the first time in Jordan. “Nostalgia” was the title of Al-Maari’s solo show in Paris in 2000, and again in Damascus earlier this year. What has changed, says the artist, is the location and the “state of the country that we yearn for,” Syria. “Nothing,” he continues, “equals the pleasure of strolling, day or night, in the old city…. A complete history and a rich civilization pursued tirelessly on foot.” In his paintings, Boutros al-Maari reflects the relationship between time and place, inspired by memories of lived experiences. Utilizing simple, yet strongly expressive characters, he projects his artistic vision by connecting figures from his life in Damascus and Paris.

 

Born in 1978 in Damascus, Al-Maari obtained a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris in 2006, and a degree in Printmaking from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Damascus University, in 1991. He has held several solo exhibitions in Paris and Damascus, and participated in a large number of group exhibitions in Damascus, Beirut, Alexandria, Hanover and Paris. Al-Maari currently lives and works in Germany.
