Born in Syria, DINO Ahmad Ali (1985) graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus. He obtained a Master's degree focusing on the subject of ‘Digital: Issues and Technology’ from the University of Paris VIII where he later defended his PhD with the thesis ‘The conception of visual information and the spectator's role in an interactive optical illusion installation’. DINO’s work highlights the relationship between black and white to produce visual movements that can capture attention and evoke sensual references in viewers.
