GEORGE MERHEB

George Merheb was born in Lebanon in 1960 where he currently works and resides. He obtained a master’s degree in Drawing and Painting from the Lebanese University of Beirut, Lebanon. Merheb completed a number of specialized courses in Venice, Italy for the restoration of historic monuments, frescoes and wall decoration.

For the past 100 years the Near and the Middle East was and still a playground of several Massacres. The scream of victims, the captives, the violation, slaughtering people, waiting death, etc. are what George Merheb shows in his paintings. He expresses his outrage and concern for those sufferings and his works become the voice to speak out.

For George Merheb writing and drawing have shared destinies. He juggles with lines, colors and letters with a dizzying mixture of features and curves. His brush navigates the canvas in a falsely chaotic way, eliminating alphabets, codified drawings that refer to ideas or simply an expression or impression that becomes a performance.
