Artist's gallery

The work of Lebanese artist Ayman Baalbaki bears the scars of his childhood spent in Lebanon during the war. His work, seeking to go beyond the actuality of conflicts, is declined in matierist paintings of urban ruins, or anonymous faces, in balaclava, scarf, helmet, camouflaged in their Keffiehs, the head buried in a bag, which signal the absence of identity of the victim and the executioner; in composite installations which mix the most diverse materials. Graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts at the Lebanese University of Beirut and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the artist has received several awards, including the silver medal in painting at the Jeux de la Francophonie in 2005. He has participated in several important group exhibitions in Lebanon, France, Great Britain, Argentina, Egypt and Niger; and this year at the Venice Biennale, in The Future of a Promise. He regularly stays in Paris.
