The paintings incorporate lots of trees and woodland, as well as precise renderings of Beirut rooftops and the closely connected web of buildings lining the Beirut coast. The paintings shift from every angle, fluctuating from exceptionally luminous, depicting early morning Beirut, to more solemn, eerily and dimly lit pieces.Since returning to Beirut, he's bent his mind to establishing Laboratoire d'Art, a space dedicated to promoting and encouraging different art disciplines, and launching the Cabriolet Film Festival, the country's first international outdoor film festival.
