Born in Lattakia, Syria, Fadi Yazigi pursued his degree in Fine Arts in Sculpture in 1988. His body of work varies from paintings to sculptures to reliefs, and focuses on the day to day life in Syria. Yazigi’s figurative paintings and bronze sculptures often portray people as weak creatures or half human beasts, emphasizing on their emotions. A strong aspect of his work is experimenting with new materials and techniques. Yazigi’s art is held in numerous public collections, including the Delfina Foundation and A.M. Qattan Foundation in London, and the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, UAE. It can also be found in private collections throughout the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the US. Yazigi currently resides in Damascus with his family, working as a full-time multi-media artist in his atelier in the old city.
