Meet the Artist David Najib Kasir at Mitchell Street

Tuesday, July 19, 2022 - 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Audience: Adults/ Older Adults

Categories: Cultural Heritage/History

David Najib Kasir is an Artist/Painter/Muralist/Curator who lives and works in Milwaukee. His work is comprised of personal narratives in life and cultural history. In recent years, Kasir's work draws from stories from his parents' journey to the U.S. and from where they migrated from in Syria and Iraq. As an American-born artist, Kasir reveals his cultural identity in paint and designs to inform viewers of the recent wars in Syria. By using traditional Arab designs called Zellige to dress the figures in his work, Kasir shows the beauty of a culture and the tragedy as families try to hold on to it and to each other. Kasir has a BFA in painting from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and is the proud father of two teenage daughters.
