Biography

Ibrahim Jalal is born in Syria on the 8th of December 1947 in a house filled with colourfull patchworks and tapestries, the work of a father who worked as a weaver.

In 1969 he began studying drawing and painting techniques, the practice of drawing after the living model at the Damas University of The Arts. He graduates with honours in 1973, leaves Syria and joins Paris the same year.

In 1974 he is a registered student of the National Superior School of Fine Arts in Paris, in the Gustave Singier’s atelier (Gustave Singier is a painter belonging to the abstract current of the “School of Paris” group of painters). Under his patronage, Ibrahim Jalal graduates with honours, being appraised for his abstract paintings, inspired by the colours, the spirit and shapes of the Syrian craft.

Since then, he lives and works in the Paris area.
