Bashir Hammouda was born in 1948 in Tripoli, Libya. Hammouda graduated from the Accadenua di Belle Arti in Rome in 1974, having mastered painting, engraving and printing during his time in Italy. He became an assistant teacher at Tripoli’s Al-Fateh University. Hammouda subsequently went to study in Budapest, Hungary where he attained a PhD. Hamouda returned to Libya to work at Al-Fateh University where he became a very prominent professor until his retirement. His art practice spans over several decades and he has been widely exhibited. Hammouda beautifully captures his subject matters with an expressive and emotive approach and a vibrant colour palette. More on Bashir Hammouda

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
