Athar Jaber’s work is also part of various private and public collections such as the Barjeel Art Foundation, The Palestinian Museum, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Havana (Cuba), the National Museum of Art of Lubumbashi (DRC) and the FAO Headquarters in Rome among others.
Currently, Athar Jaber is based in Antwerp where he practices his profession as an artist while also being an Associate Professor of Sculpture at the city’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
Beside my artistic practice I am also eager to share my passion for sculpture and pass my knowledge of stone carving to help people become better sculptors.
And since I believe that the future of education is not at school — classrooms should have no walls, classes should always be in session, and students should never be late – I do this through a series of YouTube video tutorials, online stone carving courses, week-long workshops, and private teaching.
This allows for teaching at scale. And the content is accessible to anyone, at any time, anywhere in the world. Allowing for learners from different cultures, interests, age groups and life experience to connect with each other.
