Representing a multi-generational mix of artists, Green Art Gallery’s program is primarily focused on contemporary artists from the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Turkey and beyond. Additionally, a strong parallel program of Arab Modernists demonstrates our commitment to the artists who influenced the next generation of Arab artists and laid the foundations for Middle Eastern art today. Represented artists work across a range of  different media yet share a rigorous, research-based approach, supported by the Gallery’s publishing program. They include Shadi Habib Allah, Nazgol Ansarinia, Kamrooz Aram, Jaber Al Azmeh, Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck, Zsolt Bodoni, Seher Shah and Hale Tenger among others.
Green Art Gallery presents a solo booth for the late Syrian modernist Mahmoud Hammad (1923-1988). Although Hammad is best known for the paintings of his Abstract period, the booth focuses on his lesser known—but no less significant—Horan period. The works in this presentation span 1958 to 1963 when he settled in Dara’a and began to consolidate his artistic identity, developing his own individual visual language. Regional politics and the Syrian quotidian—the family, the countryside, its social issues, its people—is evident in these paintings, studies, engraved medallions and lithographs which subtly speak to the ever-present tensions between rural and urban.
