Fares Thabet

b. 1982 in Hammamet, Tunisia / Lives and works in Tunis, Tunisia

Fares Thabet's paintings capture landscapes of great complexity and paradoxical serenity. He explores perception and perspective to reveal compositions that introduce scenes of his strolls or of his imaginary pictorial universe.

Strongly influenced by the Mediterranean landscape, he handles his color, seeks its vibration and luminous intensity by experimenting with various painting techniques. His approach is centered on color and light as medium and language to depict his landscapes.

In 2014 he graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Complutense University of Art in Madrid, Spain. He also obtained a certificate of higher education from Francisco Alcań tara School of Ceramics.

Thabet has participated in group exhibitions in Spain and Tunisia, including Climbing Through the Tide, B7L9 Art Station, Tunis, Tunisia; Summer Show, Selma Feriani Gallery, Tunis, Tunisia. His work is part of The Museum of African Contemporary Art, Al Maaden (MACAAL), Marrakech, Morocco, and private collections in Spain, Belgium, Germany, the U.S.A and Tunisia.
