Elias Izoli
Elias Izoli

With consummate draftsmanship, a marked command of colour and an intensive approach to capturing his subjects, Syrian artist Elias Izoli’s compositions defy conventional portraiture.  Appearing almost digitally produced, the jagged rendering of light and shadow in Izoli’s beautifully solemn portraits alludes to the sculpture form and the fixed, immovability of this medium.  

 

Born in Damascus in 1976, Elias Izoli lives and works in the city. He has participated in group exhibitions including Ayyam Gallery Beirut (2012, 2010).
