Masri Hayssam (b. 1965, Tripoli, Lebanon)
My fascination in drawing, painting, and colours is indescribable: I was seven years old. I used to save every single penny of my allowance from my father and my mother, and all what I used to get of money on different occasions from the rest of the family to buy tubes of oil paints of different colours till I complete the set of colours I like. I used to keep the tubes of oil paint in a small and portable wooden box fitted with a padlock which was given to me by my aunt , and most of the time, before I went to sleep, I used to check the treasure of colours I had counting the tubes and planning to buy what I needed next time I had the chance to save money...
To paint is a big challenge for me. Its my real language. Its my way to be and to believe in what I love.
