Adi Atassi  

Intro

I find my inspiration in love and the inner world of the multidimensional being - like a beautiful poem, film, music, and all my personal experience with many different impressions inside me about the colourful meaning of life. That being said, I am always seeking ways to express the lines between the visible and the invisible and to bring forward what the heart feels.

Construct - Demolish - Repair

I'm drawn to chaos, accidents and the harmony and beauty found within. In my work, I provoke the accident to later, during the creative process, embrace it, while looking for reconciliation and homeostasis. My approach when creating is a construct-demolish-repair process, and during this struggle I find a brute yet honest identity of my subjects.

Our perception of the world and ourselves is grounded on explicit or implicit agreements in society. I'm instigating this conventionalism and exposing the viewer to a visceral discourse concerned with our own bodily integrity and mortality.

Bio

Adi Atassi was born in Homs, Syria in 1962. Growing up in beautiful landscapes, where the colors of nature alternate dramatically under the glaring light and where history and religion coexist, it was natural for his love of art to surface. At the age of 18, he entered the University of Damascus, where he studied Fine Arts. 

Like a sea gull flying to different lands building its nests, Adi’s fate brought him to Cyprus, which has provided him with his new home since 1987. His status as a foreigner, has given him the loneliness an artist needs, but at the same time, the familiarity of the climate and the history of place, has given him the love and warmth necessary for his creativity to thrive.

He has held a variety of exhibitions in the annual show of the Space Studios in Nicosia, in the Open Studios within the walls of Nicosia and in various exhibitions hosted by the Cyprus Chamber of Fine Arts, and he has participated in many group shows in Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Romania, Germany, and Spain. In 2006, he won first prize in the art-competition for the design and creation of a work of art for the new Supreme Court building in Nicosia. 

Adi Atassi finds inspiration in love and “the inner world of the multidimensional being.

 

Beautiful poem, film, music, and all my personal experience that kept inside me different impressions about the colourful meaning of life.” That being said, he is always seeking ways to express the lines between the visible and the invisible and bring forward what the heart feels. 

 

As a multidimensional being, as creator, as an accumulator of experiences, I can say that I am an artist.

I'm interested in chaos, accidents and the harmony and beauty found within. In my work I provoke the accident to later, during the creative process, embrace it looking for reconciliation and homeostasis. My approach as when creating is a construct-demolish-repair process; during this struggle I find a brute yet honest identity of my subjects.


Our perception of the world and ourselves is grounded on explicit or implicit agreements in society. I'm instigating this conventionalism and exposing the viewer to a visceral discourse concerned with our own bodily integrity and mortality.

 

Adi Atassi is artist in residence at Casale Flaminia Residency program and member of the Fellowship selection committee.

Volunteering

“That day, as I left Syria, I looked back at the shore. And I said to myself ‘never, ever will I return,’” and 26 years later, moved by the plight of his countrymen, Adi found himself retracting his youthful decision, returning to his roots as a volunteer.

Through the campaign "The Warmth of the Syrian Blossom" Adi and his group of volunteers provided for the most basic needs of the refugee camp, food, water, medicine and warmth!

“Pain is a big source of my inspiration, though the greatest source is love.”
