Anas Albraehe is a Syrian painter and theatre performance artist. Born in Soueida in 1991, he studied painting and drawing at the Fine Arts University of Damascus. In the context of the war in Syria, he moved to Beirut, where, in 2015, he obtained a Master in Psychology and Art Therapy at the Lebanese University.

Anas Albraehe bears the influence of 19th and early 20th-century French painting, notably Jean François Millet, Jules Breton and Henri Matisse. About his apparently intimate compositions, Natasha Gasparian writes that “Albraehe observes, and in the medium of painting, represents the men who share his apartment, according to shift, when sleep has fallen upon them. He includes traces of their waking life within the frame. His subjects are labourers, men displaced by war, 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 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.”
