Artwork by Marwan

The jewels of my career

June 2 - June 30, 2023

Featuring mask-like faces, imposing human figures and contorted bodies, Marwan’s ‘face landscapes’ draw on a range of human emotions, offering a window into the inner world of subjective human experience. Featured in this exhibition are Marwan’s masterpieces from the 1960s and the 1970s, of which very few remain in existence. Reflecting on his work from this critical period, Marwan asserted that the Barjeel Art Foundation’s collection holds “the jewels of my career”.
