Syrian Sculptor

Syrian Sculptor Mustafa Ali seems to be "in" these days, so when I had the chance to visit his workshop in Bab Sharki I couldn't say no. His workshop is actually an old Arabic house that has been converted into a workshop and gallery. The Ugarit born artist sculpts mostly in bronze. His workshop is taking part in the" Colors of Damascus" competition, aiming at promoting young Syrian artists. The competition is in collaboration with Ricerca e Cooperazione and the European Delegation. Although I am more of a traditional when it comes to art, I enjoyed my visit there. Here are some photos I took:

Very good photos. Unique!

Rami: Thanks, I also liked the small statues.

Amr: Glad you liked it, I also think people ought to pay more attention to art.

Omar: My favourite was the first sculpture.

Nour: I wish you the best and I hope you have a safe trip:)

Aleppian: Thanks for dropping by :)

I never liked sculpting, but they are so original. I can make an exception.

P.S. Its probably also that I am listening to some mean Om Kolthoom songs and I am in a good mood.

Steliano: I think the Om Kalthoom songs had something to do with it ;)
