Layali Alawad is a Syrian Artist based in Germany. She was born in Aachen 1990, however, shortly after, her family moved to Damascus where she grew up and did her Bachelor specializing in “Graphic and Printing Technic“ at the Academy of Fine Arts, Damascus University in 2013. Her graduation project: Images from memory covered four printing techniques (Linoleum, Intaglio, silk screen and Lithograph). During her studies, Layali participated in many exhibitions and workshops in Damascus and other Syrian cities.
In 2014, and due to the civil war in Syria, Layali and her Family returned back to Germany, to the city where she was born, Aachen, to continue and develop her career in Europe. Since then, she focused her artistic output on painting rather than printing techniques due to the limitations of equipment and workspace. She has taken part in numerous exhibitions and workshops in different cities in Europe as Stadtmuseum “Haus zum Löwen“ Isenburg and Stadtmuseum Dresden in Germany and Landmuseum van Valkenburg in the Netherlands and other galleries in Belgium, Italy and France.
In 2020 Layali completed a Master of Fine Arts at Alanus University in Bonn, Germany under the supervision of Dr. Ulrike Uller Rüter and currently working as an independent artist in Aachen.
