When Arabic can actually be Japanese!
Carla R. Salem was born in Lebanon in 1978. She is an artist and printmaker whose work explores words and language. After living
in Japan for seven years, Salem merges the language and culture of Japan and her native Arabic through an exploration of the surface and texture of self-made mulberry paper (washi). Salem received her PhD in Arts from the Tokyo University of The Arts, and her Masters (MFA)
in Visual Communication from Nagaoka Institute of Design, Niigata, Japan. Salem is developing her own printmaking techniques using Japanese wood lacquer (urushi). She teaches at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Lebanese University, and teaches printmaking at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon.
