Bassam Al-Sabah

Artist Biography


I am an emerging inter-deciplinary artist working across film, painting, sculpture and printed matter. I graduated from IADT’s BA Visual Art Practice in 2016 and was awarded the RHA Graduate Studio Award (2016-2017) and the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Graduate Residency Award (2018-2019).

In 2018 my work was shown in Futures at the RHA and Periodical Review at Pallas Projects. I also exhibited a new CGI film at TULCA which was funded by the Arab Culture Fund and will be shown at a collections exhibition ‘A Fiction Close to Reality’ at IMMA in 2019.

I have had solo exhibitions at Eight gallery (2017) and The LAB (2018), and Solstice Arts Centre (2019). I was listed in the Irish Times as an“artist to watch” by Gemma Tipton in 2017 and have presented my practice through public talks at The Hugh Lane, RHA, Dublin Castle and GMIT.
