Bilal Hamdad

Lueurs d’un soir II

The artist

Born in Sidi Bel Abbes, Algeria, in 1987, Bilal Hamdad lives and works in Paris.
His large-scale oil paintings, based on photographs, serve as contemporary interpretations of urban scenes. By contrasting anonymity and intimacy, his work portrays a poignantly realistic, universal metropolitan experience. The latter, is paired with a commitment to shed light on the invisible, with a technique formed through a variety of inspirations, from Hopper to Rubens, via the Impressionists. In this way, he explores the complexities of Parisian society, from solitude to cultural diversity.
