Born in Damascus, to an Armenian mother and a Syrian father. After obtaining an M.Sc. in biochemistry in Damascus, I moved to Paris, where I received my Ph.D. in microbiology and virology from the University Paris VII. I then joined one of the leading Paris-based Art school, l’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs.
The key element of my work is the human state from past to present, by constantly seeking to push the boundaries of our consciousness on the way to unification. By guiding my conceptual thinking towards poetry, my projects are standing at the intersection of the collective memory of trauma, inherited from my diverse origins and my personal life experiences. Resilience is the beating heart of my creative process in response to human pain and suffering.
