Khaled Alkhani, a painter from Syria, arrived in France in 2011, forced to flee his country after taking part in demonstrations against Bashar al-Assad.
The violence that has shaken and still shakes his country permeates his work. The woman, solitary and anonymous, is at the centre of his work. Long silhouettes, both elegant and silent, are draped in bright colours, a pictorial translation of the artist's emotions. Between the play of materials and the freedom of movement, the feminine figure of Khaled Alkhani bewitches us.
"Khaled Alkhani's contemporary expressionism conjures up bad memories. His majestic art speaks of infinite life that resists infinitely, and his painting dazzles the expanse." Christian Noorbergen, art critic.
Khaled Alkhani's works have been exhibited all over the world, in France as well as in Canada, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Germany.
