My parents were part of an incredible movement of young artists in the 70s, most of whom didn’t realize would become so important in Lebanon’s artistic history. Artists, Calligraphers, Theatre Directors, Gallerists and more. We are lucky to call them friends, I will introduce you to two artists as they continue to inspire me.
A poet, an author, a visual artist and a painting, there is not much that Etel does not touch with out interpreting it and making it her own in the most inspiring ways. We love what she does and at the age of 95 she continues to inspire us.
Amine El Bacha
We grew up with Amine’s beautiful watercolors spotted around the house, which always made me dream. I loved the way he interpreted life through a color and happy filter. His art work makes me smile.
