Leveraging his background in architecture, Mohamad Hafez creates photorealistic three-dimensional scenes that architecturally represent the urban fabric of the Middle East and serve as his backdrops for political and social expression. The work combines his passion for street art and activism and seeks to promote and sustain a global awareness about the ongoing Syrian conflict. The intent of Hafez’s streetscapes is to expose the Middle East’s conflicts to the world in a modest, artistic approach to appeal to a wider contemporary audience.

Syrian-American artist and architect, Mohamad Hafez creates surrealistic Middle Eastern streetscapes that are architectural in their appearance yet politically charged in their content. In 2019, he was selected as one of the 40 under 40 artists in the Middle East by London’s Apollo Magazine.
