    Bonhams is delighted to present this stunning work by one of Libya's most celebrated artists. Bashir Hammouda was born in 1948 in Tripoli, Libya. Hammouda graduated from the Accadenua di Belle Arti in Rome in 1974, having mastered painting, engraving and printing during his time in Italy. He became an assistant teacher at Tripoli's Al-Fateh University. Hammouda subsequently went to study in Budapest, Hungary where he attained a PhD. Hamouda returned to Libya to work at Al-Fateh University where he became a very prominent professor until his retirement. His art practice spans over several decades and he has been widely exhibited. Hammouda beautifully captures his subject matters with an expressive and emotive approach and a vibrant colour palette.
