Sabhan Adam was born in 1972 in Hassakeh, Syria. He is interested initially in poetry & literature. Autodidact, he starts to paint around 17 years and knows considerable appreciation from art centers in his country and abroad.
The painting of Sabhan, single in its kind, reflects a strong individuality. It can be influenced by the colors of his native soil and by his surroundings, but Subhan considers that when he paints, he paints for "the world". Through his mental identity, he represents humanity, grotesque creatures, without falling into the caricature. Badly developed, monstrous, without being terrifying, the characters of Sabhan Adam are difficult to define or encircle."
The gestures of Subhan express anger physically. This one is for the artist a necessary engine: "I have much anger in me, the more I paint, the more anger I get"
This recombining of mankind reflects the intrisincally personal vision of the painter of a humanity corroded by its faintnesses.
"Since my birth and up to date, I feel dizzy and disgusted from the black human history which is full up with blood, wars, hypocrisy, exploitation in human relationships, adding the differences among religions, nationalities and ideologies. Drawing is the medicine for my ill soul and it is the source of its purification. My aim is still contemplative, peaceful and innocent with crystal presence on this earth".
