Jwan Yosef is a Syrian-born Swedish artist and painter, presently based in London. He is well-known for his plastic art. His art involves a new approach and a new way of composing which is original and unique, totally different from the routine, common, well-established methods. Born in Syria and brought up in Sweden, he showed artistic inclinations from childhood. Yosef earned a degree in fine arts from ‘Konstfack University,’ Stockholm, and later pursued his Master’s in Fine Arts from London’s ‘Central Saint Martins.’ Starting at Konstfack, he participated in several group exhibitions at various places, including Vienna, Prague, London, Dallas and Los Angeles. He held two solo exhibitions - ‘Painting about Sex, Flesh, and Violence’ and ‘High Notes’- in 2013, and another, ‘Masked,’ in 2016. Yosef is a founding member and studio holder at ‘The Bomb Factory Art Foundation.’ With some of his art, he creates a twilight zone between paintings and sculptural objects. Yosef is openly gay and is married to Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin.
