Rami Abdelnour is a copper artist and craftsman who emigrated from Damascus, Syria in 2018. He was introduced to metalwork as a jeweller and a gem setter, and started his own jewellery company in Damascus. His father, an artist and photographer, helped Rami to further consider the elements of colour and perspective in his work.
Rami developed an interest in creating on copper, experimenting with intricate techniques to produce new ideas in art and decorative works. Inspired by ancient and organic patterning, Rami has been experimenting with embossing, etching, engraving, metal press and patina on a copper sheet and wood.
