Safaa Al Set
Born in 1974, Safaa Al Set graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Damascus University in 1997. After having briefly experimenting with multi-media graphic design, she decided to pursue a differing artistic route. Al Set works with metal using both steel and copper which offers rough texture and design. She transforms the firm and rigid quality of a metal into an element that is animate and flowing. Al Set plays with fire, heating and melding scrap pieces of iron and copper to form giant sculptures.
