Information about the artist
Today he lives and works in New York, but still clearly remembers the Aleppo of his childhood days:“Aleppo was a walk-in museum. The old traditional houses and alleys, the blacksmith’s work and the carvings, the stone reliefs and blue and white porcelain, colorful dried wool on the roofs…”
The impressions of the once so lively city, declared a World Heritage Site in 1986 and now largely destroyed by the civil war, continue to shape Mourad’s visual worlds to this day.
In addition, he has a great fascination and sense of responsibility for the history and stories of his Armenian ancestors.
In his paintings and drawings, he often uses historical sites and architecture as motifs, recreates them, and relates them to the present.
Strong colors and a filigree ductus open a deep impression into Mourad’s world. The powerful and at the same time fine contours are reminiscent of Arabic calligraphy, which is traditionally often accompanied by corresponding ornamentation.
