Lutfi Romhein

Born in Kraia, Syria in 1954, Lutfi Romhein studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara, Italy in 1985. The artist works with wood, marble, plaster and steel. He sculpts aerodynamic, smooth and soothing figures, animals and abstract shapes. The works vary in scale, from monumental public commissions to pedestal-sized pieces and furniture. Romhein’s abstractions translate into multiinterpretative subjects suggestive of lean sensuality. Exhibitions of his sculptures have been held in Syria, the UAE, Italy, France, Canada, the USA, Norway, England and Spain. His work is also on permanent display at the National Museum of Damascus; National Museum in Amman; Town Hall of Brusque, Sainte Affrique in France, the Syrian Embassy in Washington DC and Burj Khalifa Plaza, Dubai.
