Bahram Hajo was born in Syria in 1952. He studied at the Fine Arts Academy, Dusseldorf, and later graduated from the Kunstakademie Münster, Germany in 1984. His figurative paintings invite a reflection on solitude and isolation: lonely faces cautiously stare out at the viewer; elsewhere, figures turn their backs defensively away from the viewer. The transience of emotion is further captured in the splashes of bold color that punctuate an otherwise subtle and sparse canvas. Hajo has participated in numerous exhibitions, including Museum Krakau in Poland, Green Art Gallery Dubai, Karim Gallery in Amman, and more recently, Galerie GNG in Paris. He lives and works in Germany.
