Tamim Sibai is a Syrian born, Berlin based artist. His latest work, DREAMERS, sees a series of portraits with their eyes softly closed. Amidst Tamims wild tones and expressionist technique, the figures transpire a certain sense of calm, a deep aura of mystery. I had the pleasure of spending time at Tamims Berlin atelier while he was working on DREAMERS. A labyrinth of colour, Tamims exuberating positivity glows through his paintings, filling the room with wonder. Thank you Tamim for inviting me into your world.

Through many of changes, experiences, challenges and surprises, you still can find your own spot where you can express, talk, sing, write, shout, laugh, paint, share and feel!
This spot might be your rhythm, the rhythm that you feel it is the only way to avoid the routine and all what hits you, the rhythm that you can create it and shape it the way you want!
I have found my rhythm the last 2 months in this cosy place, and i had to put it somewhere out of this regular life progress, surrounded by good friends and positive vibes.
” One of my best experience that i had, it was doing the exhibition again in Khartoum-Sudan with my friend Elmountasir at L’institut français de Khartoum.
This video shows and tells exactly our Subject of combining the title “conversation” with the People around and the paintings themselves and how we are all part of it talking and explaining what we can see through these paintings at the same time the paintings had decided to be quite and just looking and waiting”.
Enjoy the video and keep tuned for more coming soon.
This was the first step to do a solo exhibition by the gallery of the French Culture Center Khartoum/Sudan.
“Fake Perfection” was the title of the portraits that took a main part of this exhibition, and details with strongly thick layers of oil colours showing more aggressive sides of the human behaviour.
