Basel Uraiqat is a Jordanian artist, architect, and designer. In his Amman-based atelier, his work is a process of integrating art, philosophy, and technology to create works that explore new formations and dimensions. 

  Basel's art aims at discovering the topography of the human figure through an expressionist study of light, colour, and emotion. He exploits the intuitive dimensions of representation to expose the naked reality of the natural form through painting, sculpture, and object design. Through the distortion of scale, texture and movement, his work looks for the inner perceptive possibilities of the human mind. 

  Basel was born and raised in Amman, where he first discovered the possibilities of his art through various courses and individual research during his years of study. After obtaining his Bachelor's degree in architecture from the University of Jordan, he further developed his art skills and thinking through a course at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, where he had a chance to exhibit his works. Alongside his work in painting, he continues to develop new methods through attending technology and design workshops around the world. 

  Uraiqat held his first solo painting exhibition at the French Cultural Center in Amman in 2006. Since then, he has participated in group exhibitions in Jordan, most recently in "Bold Impressions" at Nabad in 2014, and at the "Architist" section of the Sunny Art Fair 2010.
