Yasser Mohammed Noor AlGharbi is a Syrian painter and calligrapher based inRiyadh, Saudi Arabia since December 2010.
Yasser began painting in primary school. Although he graduated from the Faculty of Law of the University of Aleppo in 2006, he never practised law due to his decided passion for art. Gradually developing his talent, and through perseverance, Yasser successfully exhibited for the first time at the Aleppo University in 2004.
Yasser recently spoke of the situation in Syria and the impact he hopes his art will have: "There is no doubt that what is happening in my country may have a negative psychological impact not only on me and my future plans and my internal thinking, but it has also had a positive impact on my work; I am more and more determined to work so that I may through my art help even one person from my country, and maybe even more people from what looks to be a dark future. I am in search for a new life for my son .. and perhaps for a new homeland too."
