There is often more than one side to every artist. Hasan Dhaimish was no different.

Written by his son, Sherif, A Libyan Artist in Exile provides a snapshot into his father’s life and works through the lens of his art and satire.

As a satirist who lived in exile in the UK for most of his life, Hasan watched his home from afar and voiced an opinion through cartoons for four decades, under the pseudonym Alsatoor (The Cleaver).

But there was more to his artistry than satire. Much of Hasan’s work was rooted in the culture he absorbed whilst living in Brierfield, a post-industrial town in Lancashire, northwest England.

From portraits of blues and jazz artists, to abstract scenes of African warriors and old street scenes of Libya, Hasan’s work is an expression of his life as an exiled human.

This is a limited edition publication, which coincides with a London exhibition taking place in August 2021 at Hoxton 253.
