My new series entitled “Dieci” is a collection of 10 mixed media paintings, made with oil paint and graffiti spray cans. Some portions in most of the artwork are shrouded with fabric veils. These fabric veil patterns are inspired by tablecloth that people used to display on coffee tables. They remind me of my childhood memories and of people’s traditions. The fabric used for this collection is brought from the souks of Tripoli, a city in the North of Lebanon.“Dieci” is in a way an alliance between modern expressionism and traditional motifs that are in symbiosis. It is a form of figurative abstract.
