Fadi Yazigi.
"Art is the cul­mi­na­tion of unin­hib­ited cre­ative freedom to visu­ally express the social and polit­ical sit­u­a­tion of our times. My works are a nos­talgic chron­icle of rela­tion­ships; the source of my stim­u­la­tion is all that sur­rounds me and all those who have left an indelible mark on my life. Experimenting with var­ious tech­niques and media, I try to escape from monotony. Whether painting on canvas, card­board, tex­tiles or news­pa­pers, using acrylics, oil or ink, I depict people and human emo­tions. I paint, sculpt and mould as I observe the world. I con­tinue to explore new mate­rials for my work; exper­i­menting in a very wide variety of ways and forms. Each new mate­rial gives a par­tic­ular feeling and each new image, whether on a blank canvas, cloth, paper bag, Arabic bread or sculpted clay, comes from the same inspi­ra­tion and cur­rent of cre­ativity."

Biography.
Fadi Yazigi cur­rently works in Damascus, pro­ducing a range of works from painting to sculp­ture to reliefs that all mirror each other in terms of sub­ject matter and, for the most part, focus on everyday life in Syria in an overall unhappy or alien­ated tone. He often paints directly on fur­ni­ture or news­paper. Yazigi reg­u­larly casts his sculp­tures in bronze, and they often depict people as underde­vel­oped crea­tures or as half-human beasts.

As a fig­u­ra­tive painter, his work revolves around people and human emo­tions with a nos­talgic sen­si­bility towards the indi­vid­uals that he encoun­ters. A strong facet of his work is exper­i­menting with new mate­rials and tech­niques, allowing him to con­tin­u­ously increase the range of his oeuvre.
