Mark Hachem Gallery – Beirut is delighted to present “Writings”, a solo exhibition by Lebanese artist George Merheb, featuring a new body of works.
Haunted by letters, and their dimension in time and space, their energy beyond their shape, George Merheb offers a systematic demolition of traditional writings in his works for the benefit of a new global language.
Born in Lebanon in 1960, Merheb has obtained a master’s degree in drawing and painting from the Lebanese University of Beirut, Lebanon. He then studied in Venice, Italy from 1992 to 1996.
Merheb’s work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe and the Arab world. George has also participated in several international fairs in France, Switzerland, Egypt and Lebanon.
His most noted accomplishments include limited edition lithography’s at the “National Museum” of Beirut, – Lebanon, a 450m2 painting of murals for “Chantier Fence” in Beirut Central District and 250m2 paintings of murals at “St Antoine Church” Baabdat, – Lebanon.
Exhibition will be on display until March 31, 2018
