For the painter Tamim Sibai, born in Damascus 1991 and currently working and living in Berlin, art is a means to face one’s own thoughts and feelings.Influenced by dialogue with the other(s), encountered behaviours, masks and mirror images, Tamim’s painted portraits reflect a mixture of the painted person’s image and the artist’s own feelings towards that person. His paintings style is colourful and he favors thick layers of oil paint as a technique. The colours are aggressive and applied out of free movement. Tamim’s paintings are lively and serious at the same time. Despite the wild and expressionist tone, the figures transpire a certain sense of calm. Their eyes are motionless and rigid.

He has shown his artworks at many exhibitions, in Damascus, Berlin, Khartoum and in a private collection in Beirut, Khartoum, Graz, Montreal, Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Berlin.
