Amy's picture

Ahmad is a Syrian artist born and raised in Damascus, Syria. Since coming to the UK, Ahmad has been developing his own multi-dimensional art technique using nails, string, shadows and calligraphy. Ahmad uses his artwork to narrate human experiences of conflict and ways of finding internal peace. His work has been exhibited in the UK, Switzerland and Germany and part of it is compiled into his book ‘Multi-Dimensional Art Technique’.

For the Emerging Voices project, Ahmad has been using his experience in transforming abstract ideas into art to guide workshops with participants from community groups. Ahmad has been supporting the participants to find ways to creatively express their internal thoughts and emotions regarding isolation, finding solace through online community groups, and working through any apprehensions they might have around returning to ‘normal’. Ahmad has been involved with the local community at Reading since arriving here 7 years ago and has developed strong relationships with the local community. He is excited to be participating in a new collaborative project with the community.
