Anas Albraehe is a Beirut-based artist who primarily works in painting and theatre performance. He received a bachelor’s degree in painting and drawing in 2014 from the Fine Arts University of Damascus, Syria. After the onset of war in Syria, he relocated to Lebanon and obtained an MA in Psychology and Art Therapy from the Lebanese University in 2015.

‘Albraehe observes, and in the medium of painting, represents the men who share his room, according to shift, when sleep has fallen upon them. He includes traces of their waking life within the frame. His subjects are laborers, men displaced by war, and who find no other refuge but under the temporary spell of sleep. Albraehe’s painting is warm, bright and intimate. It seeks to capture these men’s vulnerability, their humanity. Yet the traces that infiltrate from the edges of the frame are reminders of the increasing inseparability between sleep and wakefulness – in other words: the neglected politics of sleep.’

Natasha Gasparian, The Fall of Sleep.
