Wessam H. Matouk

Aleppo, 1990

Wessam only uses pen, ruler and compass, in his drawings inspired by the old masters of the Orient. He studied geology at Aleppo University. His art started by trying an ancient pattern and it turned into a passion and profession. His work asks great patience, focus and precision. To speak with M.C. Escher: “My work is a game, a very serious game”.
