Bashar Attar Biography:
I have been creating this type of work for over 30 years, since I was a young man in Homs, Syria. I learned the techniques from my sister who was majoring in Art and Interior Design at the time. I enjoy the challenge of creating such detailed pieces in a unique style. One piece can take anywhere from few days to few weeks depending on its size and my free time!
My copper art incorporates different subjects including nature, calligraphy, animals, people, buildings, and more some. Some of the pieces reflect an influence from my native Syria, while others show symbols from other beautiful cultures across the world. My work includes variety of techniques of drawing, sculpting and painting. As with much art, the most important thing required is patience.
