Khaled ALKHANI (Huma, Syria 1975 - )


About

Khaled Alkhani, a recent refugee from the ruins of Syria, fearlessly proffers slashes of colour that
jag across space. He conjures up powerful maelstroms that birth sublime, fragile heads that are delicate,
powerful, dominant, yet profoundly introspective. Heads of godforsaken Madonnas, carved of the opaque sky
on devastated lands. Single heads, like islets of flesh.
Khaled Alkhani is born in Syria in 1975. He creates oil paintings and murals
based on his personal reflection of the conflict in Syria He expresses his struggles and
pain through his artworks by using high contrast colours and technical brushstroke.
Alkhani learned under Sohail Alahdab as an adolescent pictorial techniques and clay
modelling. Then he moved to Damascus in 1999 to pursue Art studies at the School
of Fine Arts where he graduated in 2001. Khaled exhibited with The Damascus
gallery Naseer Shura in 1999 to 2001. Then he presented his solo exhibition in
Kuwait, Dubai, Jordan, France, German, and Saudi Arabia. In 2012, he exhibited his
work at the La Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris.
In 2013 The museum Kunsthalle zu Kiel in Kiel, Germany, invited Khaled Alkhani to
create a mural painting in the museum. In 2014 la galerie Europa in Paris showed his
works. Now he is collaborating with Z Gallery Arts (Vancouver BC, Canada) with his
first solo exhibition in North America in November 2017 and participating in Context
