We are three brothers - Assaf, Mansour and Aref – who are innate sculptors, passing down a heritage of carving stone through the generations. We initially took the profession from our father Kamel Assaf and have since developed it, through the appreciation of ratios, dimensions, and the aesthetic standards of architecture and artistic sculpturing. We were also influenced and mentored by the works of our godfather, the fine artist Aref Al Rayess, and those of our uncle, the fine artist Fouad Al Warhani.
Our work over the years entailed various types of privately commissioned visual art work (stone and bronze statues, sculptures, reliefs, and carvings) for individuals, private and public institutions. A number of these statues and sculptures are on display in our Atelier (www.atelierassaf.org), recently opened to the public in 2016.
The atelier was featured in the local and international news agencies.
