< Lutfi Romhein
Lutfi Romhein
was born in Kraia, Syria, on the 22nd of September 1954.
After his studies, he established his own studio in Damascus where he worked on stone and wood. He made several exhibitions in Syria and other foreign countries, which have created enthusiasm and interest in people amongst which there are the art experts, journalists, criticisers and others.  In 1981, he travelled to Carrara-Italy to sculpt and to study in the Fine Arts Academy. Currently, he utilises his sculptural ingredients namely; stone, wood and metal to form miniatures and monumental. Nonetheless, his unique style of furniture is always maintained, and in this way he finds in his various achievements the beauty, the purity, and the sculptural strength.  "…Lutfi exemplifies the tension of this exploration, with the distinctive facility of a man communicating with his forms, using a variety of materials and technical methods together with an unambiguous creative impulse. …” Extracted from "The persuasive fascination of form” By Claudio Giumelli -2001
