Many of Ammar's art works painted during his stay in Romania express his nostalgic feelings for the women from his country of origin, Syria. Mothers, sisters, and fiances are all represented in his paintings, as in the pictures shown left.
Throughout his career, Ammar has won several prizes and much recognition. The most important of these, awarded in 2006, is: "The Key of the Old Damascus".
In Bucharest, Romania, he has exhibited since 2010, the year when the Basil Art Gallery gave him full confidence and trust. The curator exhibited his work again in 2013 and 2015. Ammar has exhibited several times a year ever since, at locations such as the Elite Art Gallery in Bucharest and - more recently - at the Ana Gallery, too.
Studying art in Syria, Ammar got his BA in Fine Arts from the University of Damascus. Sice 2003 he has been a member of the Association of the Fine Arts, in Syria.
On the topic of the way he paints, Ammar confesses: "...Me and my painting talk to each-other. I never finish a work until we speak. Meanwhile, spare time for me, is sketching. I always find myself at home with a piece of paper in my hands. The sketches I work on are in the good tradition of the sculpture school I've been in. First I am a sculptor, and you can see this while I am sketching. I always draw as a sculptor, but not as a painter...".
This could well be the reason why art created by Ammar so fully catches the collector's eye. He truly paints... "sculpturally".
