With every inch of wall surface hung with art, ranging from abstract to still life and more experimental works, onlookers will find plenty to absorb and rummage through.Elsewhere in the show, "Basta Stop" seems a slight departure from the artist's other more boisterous works. Set during Beirut's heyday, when tramcars were the transport of choice and low-rise buildings the architectural ideal, Hamade's bustling scene is adorned with glowing specters, walking about the streets and crowding the tram. Perhaps the artist was making a comment on authoritarianism – that of the politician or maybe the artist.That isn't to say onlookers won't enjoy spending time unearthing Hamade's effervescent and eccentric paintings.
