Serge Hamad

 

Serge Hamad is a French/Algerian self taught visual artist based in NY. The artist started photography at a very young age. In the mid-eighties he used both video and photography as a media to cover war-zones and inform about sociopolitical situations like in Iraq, Balkan… Exposed to both Western and Eastern culture at a young age he feels that “An artwork is successful when once injected into the communication channels it manages to awake a dialog.


Yet Serge Hamad also makes room in his oeuvre for more light-hearted fare. Turning an expressive realistic image into abstraction, he shifts colors and blurs them into reality between photography and digital rendering in his Temporal Perception series. When seen for the first time at a glimpse, the artworks seem to form an entity. “It’s just when our brain starts to analyze our vision that we understand how we lost our childhood.” says the artist.


In 2010 Serge Hamad dedicated his time mainly to Fine Art photography. Since then, his work has been exhibited at several galleries in the US as well as internationally and auctioned at Paddle 8, Artsy, Christie’s London, Sotheby’s House, and the Robert Wilson’s Water Mill Foundation.
