The solo exhibition Opening Ceremony shows works by Syrian artist Tamim Sibai. Sibai’s artistic work is influenced by the dialogue with others and the observation of everyday encounters. In his painted portraits, there is an intimate intermingling between artist and subject, where both open up and reveal something about themselves. They reflect both: a depiction of the painted person as well as the artist’s own feelings towards that person. Among other things, Sibai explorers identity and questions of his own femininity in the depiction of his subjects. And so each of Tamim Sibai’s works is a character study of his subjects and himself. Opening Ceremony gathers all these characters and their stories, inviting us to find the beauty of the human being in the everyday.

In between reality and fantasy, rational and magical is a path that brings them together. So glad to take a solo show of the gallery project PLATO’S CAVE as an artist reflecting on Plato’s Philosophy and bring it to a contemporary object telling my perspective and my experiences throughout an Artwork that holds the both contrasts as a color, shape, light and the way it looks. So many steps I went through and essentially on a personal level. trying to document it and aiming to deliver a painting that matches my exact feelings and thoughts at the same time. it is always a big challenge. The exhibition will take place at Mutare Gallery in Berlin from the 6th of March till the 24th of March. you are welcome to join me this little journey. enjoy it. You do not want to miss this one. special thanks for those who made this video of the Artwork happened.

Beside my paintings and my oil colors all over my space, Etching and some prints have made me do a little challnge of scracthing a few 1:1 Portraits Prints that i really enjoyed doing them and following the steps and discover again how hard is to scratch your lines with knowing no way to erase them. enjoy it.
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.
