Most of the art works introduced will echo the city through my watch, the real Beirut...
What I encounter every day going to work and back, faces of people Known & unknown,
little forgotten streets slowly fading away into the nameless future.
Some art works will introduce art lovers to an exclusive vision, from my perspective,
of life in Beirut through a unique photo-montage, that offers many interesting details
for discovery each time you look at it.
Each revelation is a reflection of emotions encountered along the way,
a mood of passions & lust, in the city that never ceases to rise from the ashes...
Over and over again, inspiring in all its splendour, Beirut rises through this special exhibit.
Inspired by the beauty of life in Lebanon
“Bending The Walls” by Nijad Abdul Massih is a mirror of time going by, the loneliness of the world,
the simplicity of man, the trends and desires, wars, Frustration of artist’s needs, and their greed,
appreciation of intimacy, of smiles we meet every day, and will meet, in a small world.
From Beirut to Rome, to Madrid, to LA, forever dreaming of a better way to simply be myself,
with no strings attached.
