In collaboration with Art on 56, the Lebanese artist Issa Halloum is presenting his solo exhibition titled "The Brilliance of Nature", which will feature paintings in vibrant colors depicting intricately decorated landscapes in vivid colors on canvases.
Issa carefully studies movement and light, and engages with these elements to create grounded visual experiences. His paintings are expressive and simple, and have a tactile feel. Whether he is painting a bright landscape, a crowded market scene, an intimate view from a balcony, or an unknown model, the artist freezes movement and noise.
In addition, his paintings are expansive. Landscapes and scenes are given space to flourish, creating the impression that the images extend to the fringes of the canvas, celebrating the abundance of nature.
Issa Halloum was born in Kuwait in 1968 and graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts at the Lebanese University in 1993 before continuing his studies. He studied art anatomy at the Brera Academy in Milan in 1999.
He participated in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the Middle East and abroad, particularly in Lebanon, Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Italy. His works are part of many regional and international private collections.
The exhibition " The Brilliance of Nature " opens today November 26 and continues until December 23, 2021, at Art on 56, so don't miss out the opportunity to visit.
