About us

Cyrrus Gallery is a unique e-platform for the promotion and sale of Contemporary Syrian Art. Founded by Humam Alsalim in 2012, Cyrrus Gallery represents a curated selection of Syrian artists across a wide array of art genres – sculpture, painting, drawing and mixed media.

Building on his flair for collecting art, the founder of Cyrrus Gallery brings a fresh and knowledgeable approach to better the understanding of the Syrian Art. He believes in creating spaces where established and emerging Syrian artists can dialogue and exhibit their work, and where international art lovers, collectors, gallerists and curators can find a unique and curated assortment of artworks from artists from Syria, as well as from the Syrian Diaspora, conveniently available for purchase.

Cyrrus Gallery represents talented and creative Syrian artists that include, for instance, Omran Younis, Boutros Al Maari, Mahmoud Aldaoud, Khaled Youssef and Huda Takriti among others.

Some of the artists showing at Cyrrus Gallery are unknown outside of Syria, not only to the international public but also to the international commercial art world. In this effect, Cyrrus Gallery also operates as a springboard for young emerging Syrian artists to launch their careers on an international level.

In parallel, Humam Alsalim is Vice-President of SYRIAT.ART, an association for the promotion of Contemporary Syrian Art. Thus do not miss the opportunity to discover the SYRIA.ART projects!

‘SYRIA.ART – Association pour la Promotion de l’Art Contemporain Syrien’

Our association seeks to promote Contemporary Syrian Art, artists, ideas and works, while also encouraging artistic exchange and dialogue between cultures. SYRIA.ART is deliberately apolitical, highlights art, artistic creations and beauty, and pays tribute to Syrian art and the creativity and talent of Syrian artists. It is all part of a philanthropic initiative advocating the values of interartistic and intercultural dialogue.


The Syria.Art Facebook page is exclusively dedicated to introducing the Syrian Art to the international public, art lovers and collectors. Our page is a virtual archive and gallery for Syrian Art that serves as a platform to showcase and promote the work of distinguished and emerging Syrian artists, as well as the work of younger talented Syrian artists. Thus, it also provides a bridge between artists, collectors, first time buyers and art lovers.

Creative Havens: Syrian Artists And Their Studios

Creative Havens aims to raise awareness about the Syrian Art to the public, presenting portraits of Syrian artists in their studios and in their work environments. Through elaborate photographs and videos, as well as exclusive interviews, the Syrian artists open the doors of their studios, and offer a glimpse inside their “sanctuaries of creativity.” In expressing in depth their opinions on different aspects of contemporary Syrian art, they bear witness to what it means to be a Syrian artist in the today’s world.
