Was born in 1951 in Shkodra, Albania, where he still lives and works. He graduated from the Art Academy of Tirana in 1975, at a time when contemporary art was demonized, hence invisible. Before the ’90s he was part of many local and national exhibitions and in 1996 opened his solo exhibition in Tirana. Brahimi was active in many group exhibition in Austria, Switzerland, Brussels, Luxembourg.
Is a painter who shows a surprisingly strong coloring, with themes that are remarkable by their simplicity and honesty.
He alternates still lives, landscapes, figures and abstract paintings with a definite touch that makes them unmistakably his own. His work betrays a great love for the Albanian people and the nature of his homeland. Sytki Brahimi is professor of modern arts at the Art Academy of Shkodra.
