Nostalgia for tomorrow Exhibition

by Louna Maalouf

This event has finished

Statement:
“On Beirut it rains a blue oil that washes away time, sinking it towards glowing depths, and carrying it towards soaring heights. Untamed varnishing, at times purple or orange, but always white and never pious nor shameful. Louna Maalouf paints her city and protects it with harsh silhouettes and enchanting assault.”

- Fares Sassine

The artists will be present.

Biography:
Daughter of Alfred Maalouf, a great Lebanese painter and visionary, Louna Maalouf grew up in a family and environment of artists. Since a young age, art has always been an essential part of her life. In 1988, she obtained her graduate diploma in Fine Arts from Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts (ALBA).

Since 1989 and until now, she is committed to teaching at ALBA. She transmits to her students her artistic talent in schools of architecture and cinema. In 1997, Maalouf received a grant as a professor to pursue silkscreen printing and 
photography at the National School of Fine Arts 
in Cergy, Paris. 

She has participated in many group and solo exhibitions. Her work centers on the woman, the city and the citizen, and their role, identity and position in the world. A positive force emanates from her canvases, which portray the city she cherishes beyond all and from which she finds inspiration: Beirut.
