building (2)


In the next meetup of “Hiwar Art Club” we are pleased to welcome Jordanian artist ِAnees Maani to speak to us about his artistic journey with sculpture and the evolution of forms in nature and in human culture. Maani travels around the world and explores common elements that appear in forms in different environments and with different materials, organic and non-organic, artificial and natural, ancient and modern.

In Jordan, he was exploring the art of the Nabataeans and other ancient Middle Eastern historical periods. He moved to Malaysia and lived there for around three years, where he explored natural forms in rain forests and the world underwater. He later moved to Kuwait for a year, there he was exploring forms that are abstract, organic but more geometrical, inspired by the art of the Nabataeans in Petra and the art of South Arabia and Yemen from the pre-Islamic period.

Anees Maani was born in Jordan in 1973, and had received his degree in Architecture from the Building Academy in Russia in 1994. He has five solo exhibitions in his exhibition record, in addition to his participation in several group exhibitions and art symposiums in and outside of Jordan. Our guest has also represented Jordanian contemporary art in several artist residencies and workshops around the world. His artworks are part of numerous national and international collections at institutions, galleries and art museums.

Join us at 6 PM, Saturday 16/3/2019 at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, building #2.
