Mixed Media / Painting / Stockwell Road

I am a Lebanese artist and architect working primarily within painting & mixed media, to translate conflicted feelings of loss, grief and frustration relating to my home country and sense of identity. My practice chews on the latent effects of my upbringing and experiences in Lebanon, the continued relationship with my home from a distance, and its influence on my ties to my adopted home, the United Kingdom. The recent focus of my work has shifted to address my relationship to events occurring in Lebanon, as experienced from a distance and through the consumption of social media & digital content.
