  • About Baseem Rayyes

    Baseem Rayyes was born in 1970 in Syria. He received a B.S.C. in Agricultural Engineering at Damascus University. He is now a full-time writer and artist and considers his work as a war of love on the extra hatred in the world. In Baseem's words, "In the first day of 2011, before revolutions started in the Arab World, I gave a love letter to the whole world in an artistic initiative entitled A Painting on Every Wall. I devoted the first month to receive the requests from whom wish to get a painting as a gift of the new year. "What is the motive?" some asked, and I replied, "Love, only." back then I shouted, "0 World, I love you in all your details!" And when someone asked me, in the autumn of 2012, "What happened to The Syrian Mural, your painting which you started to draw during the revolution?" I replied, "It was hit by a shell, like all the Syrian walls, and I am mending it now." With all what was left of strength, I will continue the war of love which I started before the plane landed."
