Ahmad Moualla was born in Syria in 1958. He graduated from the Damascus University of Fine Arts and later from the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He is considered one of the leading postmodern artists in Syrian expressionism. His highly dramatic canvases, often composed on a grand scale, wrestle with the tension between society and the individual, the power of past and present icons, the blurred line between reality and fiction, and the conscious and subconscious mind.
His exhibitions include the solo shows Grey Ash at Green Art Gallery (Dubai, UAE, 2011); New Works at Green Art Gallery (Dubai, 2009); and a solo show held at Mark Hachem Gallery (Beirut, Lebanon, 2011). He has participated in several group shows including Written Images: Contemporary Calligraphy from the Middle East at Sundaram Tagore Gallery (Hong Kong, China, 2012); Signs: Contemporary Arab Art at Sundaram Tagore Gallery (New York, US, 2009); and Syrian Modern Art at Souq Waqif (Doha, Qatar, 2008).
Moualla is the recipient of several awards including the grand prize at the Latakia Biennale (Syria, 1999) and the first prize for Arabic calligraphy (the modern method) at the fifth session of the Burda Prize (Abu Dhabi, UAE, 2007).
