Ayman Yossri Daydban (b. 1966) is a Saudi based Palestinian-Jordanian artist whose multidisciplinary practice revolves around the deconstruction of various national narratives with the approach of a watchman or guard. This term translates into English from the artist’s Arabic last name and mirrors his approach to questions about existence, identity and belonging relating to cultural heritage, national integration, the East / West global melting pot of influence and inter-dependence and the difficulties in assimilation and translation of divergent customs and traditions.
Solo exhibitions include: Give Me The Light, Athr, Jeddah (2016); Common Grounds, Sabrina Amrani, Madrid (2014); I am Anything, I am Everything, Athr, Jeddah (2012); Identity, Selma Ferinani, London (2011).
