Born in Washington DC, AYDIN HAMAMI has found his place as one of New York’s most talented rising young artists. With a focus on binary dualities and conflicting juxtapositions, Hamami’s works suggest urban and societal decay while investigating simultaneous experiences of control and radical spatial dissections. His approach to painting is intuitive and responsive, allowing both the nature of the material and the hand of the artist to exist in harmony.
Hamami holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from Pratt Institute, a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art and a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Maryland.
In 2016, Hamami was the subject of a self-titled solo exhibition at Osuna Art. His next solo show, La Rousse, will open May 5th, 2017 at Michigan Institute For Contemporary Art. Hamami has recently been featured in The Washington Post and The Observer.
AYDIN HAMAMI lives and works in New York, New York.
