Tammam Azzam

Untitled Pictures

WIth Contributions by Mamuka Bliadze, Regina Müller, and Avinoam Shalem
Contemporary pictures from a Syrian artist that document the healing power of art.

Tammam Azzam, born in 1980 in Damascus, is a political artist who creates stirring paintings, colorful picture collages made from countless scraps of paper and moving photo collages. This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the Syrian artist’s oeuvre and describes his career over the past twenty years. The narrative follows the artist from Damascus to Dubai, Delmenhorst, and finally Berlin, where the artist has lived and worked since 2018. Untitled Pictures traces Azzam’s life and his art, including his early paintings, created via digital photomontages, as well as his large-format pictorial collages and his latest acrylic pictures. Depicting scenes from his native country, Azzam’s iconic pictorial inventions straddle the boundary between figurative and abstract art.
