Born in Mesyaf, Syria in 1981, Houmam Al Sayed is a contemporary Syrian artist. His artworks are playful renderings and recreations of memories and specific moments from his past. After studying sculpture, Al Sayed orients his work to large-scale figurative paintings.
Houmam Al Sayed graduated from the Sculpture Department of the Institute of Applied Arts in Damascus in 2003. Although relatively new to the regional art scene, he began exhibiting his work at a surprisingly young age. In 1998 he participated in an exhibition of painting at Teshrin University in Lattakia while just seventeen years old. Since then he has exhibited throughout Syria and has participated in group shows and symposiums in the Arab world and Europe.
