Artist painter-sculptor Adel Saghir (born 1930) achieved international recognition from the early 60s to the present, with his work having been exhibited world wide.
Based in the United States since 1973 (born in Beirut, Lebanon) he received growing acclaim in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.
Adel passed away in 2020 leaving behind a rich legacy of abstract expressionist works infused with Middle-Eastern Patternism and aesthetics.
The highly personal and original style of Adel Saghir evolved from the academic training passing through various contemporary art disciplines, into his own personal style.
His work has been characterized as colorful expressive linear patterns within controlled abstract forms, intuitively rooted in his Middle Eastern aesthetic heritage.
Art critic Vivian Raynor of the New York Times described his work by saying, "Adel Saghir covers a canvas with circles and oval shapes, building them up obsessively in stripes of all colors and tones. The result is a pulsating edge-to-edge image."
Other art critics reveal that, "Saghir's refusal to accept easy apparent interpretations of abstract art, is rather a delving into the genesis and roots of abstracts art itself."
"I have more than three thousand years of aesthetic heritage beginning with the Sumerians as a package to carry," Adel once said.
"In quest of an inherent authenticity with which he established his own personal style, Saghir created a new branch in international abstract art, adding a new understanding to it's realm,"
