Marwan Kassab-Bachi (1934–2016), known as Marwan, was a Syrian artist based in Berlin, where he lived most of his life after being born in Syria. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, he worked in a post-Surrealist style generally somber and desirous, creating portraits of friends, poets, politicians, and himself, which he continued through the decade. Despite living in Germany, he often expressed views about human rights in Syria, Iraq, and Palestine.

Marwan's wife, Angelika, was a former student.[1]
