Sleem Hasan is a passionate art collector and a thought leader particularly interested in the bridge between Technology, Art & Interfaith Dialogue. Sleem’s journey with art began in the eighties. He was in New York and picked up a few lithographs by James Rosenquist, an American artist and one of the protagonists of the Pop Art movement. Since then he has been collecting and collaborating with artists. 

 

One of the artists Sleem has been working with was Lebanese-Dutch artist Ralph Heimans. Sleem has been helping commissioning art from Ralph as well as promoting him. Ralph’s work now starts at around £250,000 and Sleem is one of the very few who still has the privilege of handling his work. Joined by his wife, Lamia Hasan, the couple is interested in finding new artistic talent from all over the world – something that is continually exemplified through their collection. But more than anything, it is about the ideas that an artwork transmits to the viewer that is most important.

 

Sleem Hasan and his wife Lamia have been building an art collection that merges a variety of styles, cultures and subject matters. Sleem is married with 2 daughters and is resident in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
