About the artist:

Born in Beirut in 1964, Khaled Takriti studied architecture at Damascus University in Syria. Painting later became his great passion. He moved to Paris in 2006, studied engraving at the Atelier des Beaux-arts de Paris, and graduated in 2011. He also studied comic Art at the Academy des Arts de Bruxelles and graduated in 2020.

With an interest in pop art aesthetics, which he expresses in his particular style, most of his work focuses on the human figure.  A group of his works carry a symbolic meaning, in which he uses color and perspective to present his criticism of the self and society. Other works dealt with the consequences of the war in Syria.

Takreti has held several solo exhibitions and has participated in many joint exhibitions. His works were/are on display in museums worldwide.
