Yesterday morning, the Syrian artist Ahmed Mansour died in his hometown of Homs at the age of 80.
Mansour passed away (1941-2021) after suffering with diabetes, where he was admitted to intensive care, and became in a coma for more than ten days.
The late artist began his artistic career from the theater since the 1950s, through performances by the Scouts and Workers plays, where he participated in more than 20 theatrical works, including “Hallaj” and “The King is the King.”
As for the drama, he participated in more than 30 TV series, the first of which was “The Wolves” in 1990, followed by many works, including “Poppy”, “The Five Stars Family”, “Al-Ababid”, “Night of the Travelers” and “Bab Al-Hara 4” and others.
Head of the Artists Syndicate in Homs, Amin Roumieh, mourned the late, saying that “the art scene in Syria in general and in Homs in particular has lost today a great artistic stature that has provided a lot to art, whether theater or television.”
He added that Mansour “was one of the creators who left an important artistic imprint that generations will remember. On the human level, he left a legacy of love and high morals in the hearts of everyone who knew him, so what most distinguished him was a sense of humor and love of work and life and he was known as Abu Jassim.
