  • About Oroubah Dieb

    Lives in France 

    “I express myself through my works, my personality, my emotions, and the feelings that I experience. You see feelings of sadness in the sculpture if my psychological state tends towards sadness, and the same is the case if I feel happy,” says artist Oroubah Dieb. “My work is an expression of me, in my depths.” 

    Born in Damascus, Oroubah Dieb (1968) graduated from the Adham Ismail Institute for Plastic Arts in 1989 and the Institute of Applied Arts in 1991. Initially known for sculptures in bronze and wood, she began drawing and collage after leaving Syria. Focused on emotional states, her work expresses her inner feelings and relationships with others using themes such as friendship, sadness and loss. Since her exile, she has depicted aspects of migration using her own experience as well as stories from others. 

    Dieb has participated in exhibitions in Kuwait, the US, Canada, France, Syria and Lebanon. Her works have been acquired by the Syrian Ministry of Culture and can be found in private collections.
