Born in 1972 in Syria, Numan Essa is an artist, scenographer at the Syrian National Theater and a graphic designer with a Bachelor’s Degree in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Damascus University.

Since his graduation in 2001, Essa has been very active on both the Syrian and international arts scenes, participating in 16 group exhibitions in Syria, Lebanon, the UAE and England while holding in the past three years his first individual exhibitions in Dubai, Kuwait and Lebanon.
