American artist, curator, and creative designer Tony Khawam’s recent work and curated exhibitions are influenced by the unfathomable unrest in Syria. For many creatives, like Khawam, their homeland informs both their artwork and their deeply personal stories behind their creation. There’s no better example of this than Khawam. Born in Aleppo, Syria and currently living in Florida, he believes that stories bring power to art and make the work more compelling. For him, art is a form of expression that facilitates an exchange of cultures and ideas conveyed through the viewer’s aesthetic experience of the work.
In this podcast, Tony talks about his vision as an artist, marketing strategies as an artist and gallery owner, and the two things that potential buyers consider when looking at art. He also shares the qualities he looks for when curating work and identifying artists to exhibit.
