Mohammed Labash was born in Daraa, south-west of Syria, in 1989. After graduating from Damascus University, Fine Art department in 2013, Labash moved to Beirut where he spent around one year. He eventually decided to come back to Damascus where he still lives.
His work is impregnated with the city of Damascus, it’s beauty as well as it’s ugliness and tensions. Gathering colours and impressions in all corners of the city and its surrounding, Mohammed Labash takes us on a contemplative walk on a path full of surprises, some of them good, some of them bad.
Thus he invites us to look carefully at each detail of his work to interpret its signs, like oracles trying to see the future in the road’s dust.
