Khaled Sabsabi was born in Tripoli, Lebanon before migrating to Australia with his family as a child in 1976. They settled in Western Sydney where he continues to live and work. Khaled considers himself as a socially-engaged artist and for over 30 years, he has worked in detention centres, schools, prisons, refugee and settlement camps, hospitals and youth centres, in the Australian, Arab and broader international context. Khaled genuinely believes in the power of art as an effective and influential tool to communicate with people. He is inspired by what may define us as a society and strives to make artwork that reflects human collectiveness, while questioning ideological principles and complexities of identity politics. He makes artwork that is in constant flux between the everyday and the metaphysical, in hope to find ways to enlighten our understanding of universal dynamics, which is far more complex and ultimately, more inconceivable than our physical selves.
