JEAN-MARC NAHAS:
WAR TIME, PEACE TIME

ROSE ISSA PROJECTS, LONDON
10 SEPTEMBER–3 OCTOBER 2009

“War Time, Peace Time” is Lebanese artist Jean-Marc Nahas’s first solo show in London. The exhibition features two recent series of drawings based on his coming of age during the Lebanese civil war.

As a teenager Jean-Marc Nahas witnessed scenes of torture and death that haunt him to this day. In small black-and-white drawings he flashbacks to these events, while in his more colourful drawings he depicts scenes of everyday life during and after the war.
