Essam Darawshi was born in Nazareth in 1984. He studied Physiotherapy at the Faculty of Medicine at Genoa University, Italy. In 2010, Easam enrolled in the Academy of Arts at the University of Genoa where he began his journey as an artist, driven by his passion, focusing on the Arabic Calligraphy as a form of contemporary art.
In 2013, Easam went back to his hometown where he started working on figurative and expressionist artworks influenced by graffiti, murals, and street art. His portraits do not capture the external figure of a subject, they rather serve as a portal for a journey of self-exploration and an attempt to experience a variety of forms and search for identity. Easam believes that facial expressions cannot be captured in a single moment or form hence his canvases reflect the complexity of emotions surrounding identity; one’s relationship to the surrounding environment and contradicting feelings of belonging. Easam’s work is deeply influenced by social conflict and psychological paradoxes of present-day life. He uses different techniques and applies a variety of mixed media and materials.
