Elias Naman

Elias Naman was born in Yabroud, Syria, in 1980. After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Damascus, he moved to Italy in 2002, where he graduated from the Academy of Carrara in 2009 and obtained a master’s degree in 2011. He has participated in several symposiums worldwide, showcasing his artworks in solo and group exhibitions in Italy, Syria, Brazil, Germany, and France. In his works, Naman prefers the figurative style, sculpting marble by hand, without the use of machines, reminiscent of Michelangelo's techniques from five hundred years ago. His method of execution recalls tradition and classicism; he begins working directly from the block of marble without using a model or drawing. While collaborating with various workshops in the Apuan-Versilian area, he now operates from his own studio in Carrara. Naman’s sculptures depict curved forms emerging from the marble, portraying tense bodies striving to free themselves from the cold material. His works often explore the dichotomy between male and female, reflecting a natural origin yet intertwined with cultural subconsciousness. Through his sculptures, the artist transforms marble into a romantic portrayal of life's tensions.
