Nabil Abou Hamad is searching for hope in the demolition of the past in his latest exhibition "Rubble" now on display at Remomero Italian Authors Gallery.Hamad was born in the coastal town of Haifa to a Lebanese father and a Palestinian mother. His family fled to Lebanon during the Israeli occupation. Throughout the '60s, Hamad joined a circle of some of the most accomplished Lebanese artists of the period – including Paul Guiragossian and Rafik Sharaf. In the decades since, Hamad has been featured in at least 11 art exhibitions and published 11 books.Some of Hamad's works are darker in tone.Hamad's intentions are not merely to shock. He says his mix of styles speaks personally to Lebanon, comparing layers of rubble to other layers of history. The artist smiled at Remomero founder Remo Ciucciomei."Rubble" is up through May 21 at Remomero Italian Authors Gallery.
