Mohamad Hafez.A Syrian-American artist and architect, Mohamad Hafez was born in Damascus, raised in Saudi Arabia, and educated in the Midwestern United States. Expressing the juxtaposition of East and West within him, Hafez’s work is a cross-disciplinary exploration of street art and realistic, ironic sculptural work. Using his architectural skills, he creates surrealistic Middle Eastern streetscapes in his New Haven studio that are architectural in their appearance yet politically charged in their content. Through the compilation of found objects, paint and scrap metal, his pieces reflect the political turmoil in the Middle East. #mohamadhafez #syria #syrianamerican #newhavenct #sculpture #architecturalsculpture
