Where ART you from | Emad Korkis

Emad Korkis

The Wiesbaden-based artist studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus with Safwan Dahoul, amongst others, who shaped a new art movement of Arab Modernism. Korkis’s arrival in Germany in 2008 was a momentous experience for him and, as he puts, equally a source for new inspirational power. In the exhibition, this can be seen in three of his pieces, each reflecting a different phase of his new life.
