Besher Koshaji was born, and grew up, in Syria during the 1980s. In the wake of recent tragic events and Syria’s almost constantly tumultuous political situation Besher was forced to leave behind his home and his family in order to seek refuge in Jordan during 2012.

Still residing in Jordan today, Koshaji finds himself afflicted with a nostalgia that recalls the beauty that was once synonymous with Syria, a delicate nostalgia that is regularly at risk of being overshadowed by the war and the increasingly dark course Syria is currently charting. Koshaji’s characteristic technique of breaking down forms and shapes into their base elements, building them back from the ground up, help to create touchstones and references to his preferred version of Syria’s past, whilst acknowledging what it has steadily become in recent years. It is this particular style that has formed the very crux of his recent artistic output.

He has been featured in several exhibitions in Jordan and Syria and has joined Lahd Gallery’s international platform in 2016.
