Maher was born in Damascus. He used the term "Impressionism Realism " as a trademark for his art. Maher defines this style as a revival of the significance of contemporary art, a valued tradition in a new era, with a new interpretation reflecting today's spirit of the time. His distinctive style, emerging from the dynamic of the moment, enables him to strikingly capture immediate reality while the observer can palpably feel the embedded movement. His ability to create one of his paintings in a short space of time and with great dynamic.
The basis of his artistic creations is rooted in a decade-long altercation with the art of realism. He researched the techniques of the old masters and appropriated them into his intensive self-study. It was his first contact with watercolor that made him realize that working quickly - which he was almost forced to do when working outside as the colors dry so quickly - could give his stroke more momentum and therefore enormous dynamic. With the discovery of acrylic, he was able to allow his solid basic knowledge of, not only the meticulousness and heavy art of oil painting but also the light and rapid technique of watercolor painting, to flow together to discover and develop his style of Impressionism Realism.
