DESCRIPTION

Hay Hill Gallery - the catalogue of paintings by Ali Jabbar

TRANSCRIPT

  • ALI JABBAR

  • Ali Jabbar has executed fourteen public sculptures in Turkey, Iran, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon, UAE and Germany and has previously participated in more than 85 exhibitions. Despite huge demand for his work, the artist has never neglected his academic aspirations: He teaches fine art and multimedia design in several of Copenhagen's high schools, lectures on art at Oman University, whilst contributing to numerous symposiums and conferences.

    My paintings show a vivid contrast between what is covered and naked, innocent and corrupt, old and new, tender and coarse. They are created both in an abstract and expressionist as well as in a realistic and surrealistic style. There are always distortions, contradictions, arguments, sarcasm and fear about the unknown. My paintings display the comparison between the perpetuity of things and the disappearance of the instant sensation which was created accidentally.

    Ali Jabbar was born in Iraq in 1963. Determined to make his name as a professional artist, he dedicated himself to eight years of study at the Institute of Fine Arts and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Baghdad. In 1992 Jabbar moved to Denmark where he continued to study as a painter and sculptor. 2002 marked the artists graduation from the Graphic Design School in Copenhagen and he started to make his living as a designer, producing artists catalogues, illustrations and realising a number of independent projects. The most highly regarded of these graphic projects was a series of minimalist illustrations of celebrities and politicians, reduced to shapes and colours whilst remaining recognisable.
