Hazem Sannib is a British digital artist of Syrian-Lebanese descent who is currently living in London, who expresses his vision through vibrant and thought-provoking paintings. He first started painting when he was just nine years old. As his technique improved,
he began his first experiments of painting in oils at the age of seventeen under the tuition of Farid Georges. in Homs, Syria, and soon after was chosen to exhibit his work as part of
an exhibition in Syria & Kuwait.
In 2006, he started experimenting with abstract themes and painting in acrylics under the guidance of a teacher in Norway, Mard Issa.
This period would be extremely important for Sannib, who was beginning to explore humanitarian themes through his work and develop what would later become his signature style.
In 2015 Sannib started developing his new approach of mixing modern art with classical Arabic Calligraphy by marrying two eras : the old classic and the latest digital one. Sannib used his rich Graphic Design experience to create a unique mixture of classic and modern Arabic calligraphy art. By exploring digital art methods he achieves unprecedented creative artworks. He is showing the richness of the Arabic letters and culture by blending these letters with vibrant colours, contemporary shape and artistic style. He transfers his unique artistic creations onto various surfaces such as canvas, wood and carpets.
