BEIRUT AGAIN AND AGAIN
ROSE ISSA PROJECTS, LONDON
9 NOVEMBER–9 DECEMBER 2011
For his second solo show in London, Lebanese artist Ayman Baalbaki returns to the theme of a city scarred by its experience.
Baalbaki was born in Lebanon in 1975, the year the Lebanese civil war began. Since childhood he has experienced invasion, war, displacement, destruction and deception. For this reason, many of his paintings register the impact of nearly twenty years of war and the turmoil of living in Beirut.
