Ayman Baalbaki

by Issa, Rose

With essays by Michel Fani and Lutz Becker. Painter and installation artist Ayman Baalbaki is one of the most exciting young artists to emerge from the Middle East. Bold, striking and bursting with energy, his work can be interpreted a multitude of ways: where some see despair, others see hope; where some see menace, others see courage. Beyond question is his feeling for his hometown, Beirut, whose history he explores again and again.
