Artist Story and Biography :

Italian Lebanese Artist. The artist was born 29 December in Tripoli-Lebanon. He moved to Italy in 1990. Most of his childhood and young age he experienced during a bloody civil war for fifteen years. His works can be divided into different periods and different series of works. .."I am always on the move discovering something artistically new and impressive; something significant with an eye-opening impact on the human psyche; something that does not let monotony and rote repetition take hold of my soul and the flow of my thoughts. This insatiable and agonizing feeling of unexpressed great potential inside of me is not fulfilled by the versatility in my work.

It is easy for one to be haughty, vainglorious and pretentious, but to be humble needs deep understanding to the universal truth in the conscience of the universe.

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...

“I spent all of these years doing what I know best, and I did not do anything else. “

To paint is a big challenge for me.

Its my real language.

Its my way to be and to believe in what I love.

I live four seasons every day. It’s a humongous world of perception, conceptions and achievements.

A world of renewable psychological input and output fraught with flowing emotion, endurance and pain. Its maybe the only thing it is possible to do more than any other.

I do not embrace the technicalities of one single school neither in drawing, nor in painting, and nor in mixing colours.

I am always on the move discovering something artistically new and impressive; something significant with an eye-opening impact on the human psyche; something that does not let monotony and rote repetition take hold of my soul and the flow of my thoughts.

My works can be divided up in periods and different series of works.


(…if you want to understand my art and my life, look at my self portraits and if you focus at any of my paintings, you’ll see your self in my self in different forms and different expression ).
