Adib Fattal


Born in 1962 in Washington D.C., the son of a diplomat, Adib spent most of his time in Europe, the United States and the Middle East. He graduated with a B.B.A in International Marketing from the City University of New York. Having spent some years in the field of business and banking Adib decided to dedicate himself in pursuing his passion for art.

At present, Adib lives in a town outside Damascus, where he paints and looks after his family. While the situation in Syria continues to pose difficulties for Adib and his family, his incessant optimism has not stopped him from pursuing his passion for art and for believing in a better and sunnier future.

“I would love to believe that one of these days I will open my own school of art... I also believe that one of the “duties” of the artist is to make the public happy when they look at one of his/her paintings… particularly in a world full of sadness. I thus paint with the hope that my viewer will be in a better state of mind after looking at my work.”
