Haitham Al-Hamad is interested in music and painting, his gifts appeared since childhood, especially oriental and classical music, and reading literary stories. His passion for art increased since 1988, when he began studying fine arts at Damascus University, where he realized the value of true art by studying deeply in art and delving into it. Haitham was greatly influenced by impressionism, and the emerging free color. He was deeply and strongly impressed by Van Gogh’s expressive style.
He discovered the origins of fine arts and its techniques in his postgraduate studies in which he studied the art history of Syria extending back thousands of years, where he eventually turned to Islamic arts as they represent the Arab culture.
Later, during his stay in Qatar, Al-Hamad was able, to discover the techniques and media that helped him a lot in finding the ideal ways to express his vision and philosophy. Through his successive artistic practices, and his participation in many local and international exhibitions, Al-Hamad was able to obtain international awards.
The first award was from the London Biennale on Conceptual Art, this award was the culmination of his belief that he believed in since the beginning. He believes that art must have ideas, meanings, and human messages, that convey them to sight and insight. Art is not just a visual pleasure that ends with the end of this pleasure.
Haitham Al Hamad was born in Homs, Syria, receiving his Bachelor degree in 1992, and Graduate degree in Mural Painting in 1994. Al Hamad participated in various art and cultural fairs, as well as showcasing his art in many galleries in Syria, Qatar and international shows.

In Islamic painting, especially the Islamic miniatures.
The Islamic Art geometric is identity concept for Muslim artists.
You can start with artwork geometric, but you can’t reach to the end. It is infinity
Art can certainly change human nature and add to it. This change needs time, on the scale of the age of peoples. But this change must be interactive with the concerns of society and its issues (science, philosophy, politics, and religion).
Not far from us, ten years ago, Arab people in the East have tried and are still trying to change their reality moldy.
They are trying to resist the will of the local and international regimes to crush them and prevent them from obtaining the freedom that they have been deprived of for half a century,
Starting from expressive realism to symbolic expressionism, (and if it is true, down to conceptual symbolism) and depending on color, collage, stenciling, and the art of Ajami. I create the color narrative within two physical dimensions. As for my dramatic space, which expands along the length of human suffering, it begins with the narration of the novel from the black comic and ends with tragedy.
I have connected my current technology to exit to the three dimensions and we have reached the fourth dimension which is conceptual. I practice visual art to tell my story. I do not paint. I am directing conceptual drama.
This space of whiteness in front of me makes up the beginning of the story that listed, where characters begin moving with their Mystic colors, haunting me until they rest in their inevitable place portraying the title of a Tale that is narrated
The tsunami sweeping our region today is already unreasonable human action that cannot be imagined. So, through shadow and light of the drama of color I am trying to understand the reasonable things in the inhumanity as a concept that grows in the era of the virtual media.
Haitham Al Hamad.
The departed and transplant
Haitham Al Hamad: he is buildingup the issues of hismomenta existence away from Damascus Roses. Repeating the tale of the story teller from the deck of Damascus café.
And there is no threshold we draw from yesterday’s story. Nothing but reason can deal with the uncertainty instead of prejudice him, because the truth has many faces and a history we know that has prevailed under the ash.
The problematic question is why, how and for whom all this spatial and timing demilitarization? Because there is nothing but the frequency of the fall of stone and the ash over the impact
still drives his mystical color characters’ between sleep and wakefulness and the mind in dormant state while hope Calls For to life in a tripartite interaction: Being, nothingness and existence or extinction in ungovernable prompt interruption. No choice but the consistency with reason to unravel the story, linking the weary thinking with the senses and the collapse of the self-defense.
