George Baylouni

Designation: Artist

Country: Syria

There are few more daring and creative artists around than Syrian born George Baylouni, who has made a career out of pushing the boundaries. With a huge interest in history, his style involves mixing historical art with contemporary work, using a large degree of finger painting.

But what arguably marks him out from the crowd are his paintings that mix religions, with several pieces of work focusing on both Christianity and Islam in the same painting.  Not surprisingly, his work has made exhibitions not just in Syria but right across the globe, particularly in Europe.
