DATE OF BIRTH
A passionate young artist driven by enthusiasm and adventure; I would rather sum up my life as being a " survivor by default, warrior by choice " !
For the past eight years, I've completed my Master' s degree in Interior Architecture & Sustainability (Lebanese University, Faculty of Fine Arts and Architecture). Lucky enough later, winning a full scholarship to study fashion design (Creative Space Beirut) ; I fulfilled two years of my academic study where I had the chance to display my designs in Kuwait (Boutique 4) and other local exhibitions.
Being a social activist in a society layered with the burden of insecurities, lacking delight, keeps me bouncing; trying to retain balance with the weight of my positive influence. Out of my metric understandings, and dialectic character, all through earned experiences, and life events from a happy child to a depressed adult; I have survived long journeys, driven by a healthy mind and a fragile body.
Thanks to all that, I learned how to embrace beauty by respecting the odds. I have pushed myself into challenges, transforming that into a complete lifestyle -with a sarcastic twist ;)
In my art -which is mostly a reflection of my personal experiences- I tend to exhaust possibilities; experimenting with styles, colours, forms, lines, moods, definitions and gestures; so these actually turn to become the raw models longing to ripen into a " fruitful something " . By that, provoking the audience to say something about it, rather than just pausing still; that interactive dialogue is what really makes difference, as the butterfly - effect initiating storms, I believe.
So far I have participated in four group art exhibitions in Lebanon, Beirut;* Art Creation 2 - by Exhibita ( Hotel Alexandre , Achrafieh, September 2019)* Gemmayze Festival -by Moltaka Alalwan (Gouraud street/St. Nicolas stairs, Gemmayze, October 2019)* Independence in our way -by The Lebanese Artists Association for Painters-Sculptors LAAPS (Martyrs ' Square, Beirut, November 2019)* " October 17,2019 " - by Galerie Janine Rubeiz ( Galerie Janine Rubeiz , Beirut, December 2019); this group show is in support of the Lebanese youth, their revolutionary momentum and the outstanding historical movement occurring in our country.
It’s a bit hard/early for me to sum up all the scattered puzzles and state “that’s my cause” ! But all in all, painting was as simple as serendipity, yet the vessel I pour myself into to create the most sincere and complicated formulas of speech and ability. I want to tell the story of my curves and line to encourage others, empower them, and walk the journey of meliorism aside with them.
WHO I AM
An "artivist"; hoping to motivate people with my art; as I do when meeting them for a cup of coffee
