An artist and a filmmaker.
Born in Syria, Ali Asad’s passion for art came to him at an early age. He describes the childhood experience of sitting on the floor of his family farm drawing and painting as pure magic. While doing his foundation studies at Byam Shaw school of art he was asked to apply to Goldsmiths college by one of their scouts. While at Goldsmith he was selected to do his final piece – an installation - in a show at The ICA (The Institute for Contemporary Arts London). “Although the images I use in my works are determined by aesthetic and compositional concerns they are primarily used to move and engage the viewer”.
