  • About Monif Ajaj

    Before the Syrian war, Monif Ajaj was depicting political events in the Arab world in his oeuvre. In Syria, he focused on peoples’ fear of the repressive regime which later metamorphosed into images of violence, which he describes as “canvases filled with victims … and [I] put them face-to-face with their aggressors, the sons of those in power and the military."

    Born in Deir Ezzour, Monif Ajaj (1968) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Belarus in 1995. In much of his work, Ajaj addresses controversial subjects and problematic political structures, even using the images of Arab rulers. His style mixes realism with expressionism using caricature to highlight the psychological traits of the figures he portrays.

    Ajaj has held solo exhibitions in Amman, Paris, Marseille, Brussels, Oslo, Dubai and Damascus. His artworks are part of the collections of the British Museum; Darat Al Funun, Jordan; and the Ministry of Culture, Damascus.
