The artist was born in 1989 in Masyaf, Syria. He studied Architecture getting a full scholarship at Imam Khomeini International University in Tehran. Basel currently lives in Greece where he actively gets involved with visual arts. He resides on Leros Island where he works as ZINE magazine’s Art Director and as a Cultural Mediator and Interpreter for RIC Organisation. He started dealing with art in the public space, co-creating murals with a group of visual artists in Syria (2010-11) and now on Leros Island. His studies on architecture are clearly depicted in his paintings. Immense cubic constructions occupy the painting surface, absorbing at the same time the small scale human figures, while in other cases, the human figure constitutes a structural part of the building itself. His style resembles works of metaphysical art-an actual descendant of Giorgio de Chirico.
