Born in Beirut in 1964, contemporary artist Silwan Ibrahim is renowned for his playful figures and his vibrant and flamboyant colourful compositions. After studying architecture for three years, he switched his major to Fine Arts and graduated in 1990 from the Lebanese University, National Institute of Fine Art. His unique art, styled with figures and geometric shapes, portrays an unusual vision enrapturing us out of this world. Although his paintings are full of wit and humour, they also praise philosophical ideas. His rich imagination fills the canvas with scenes that seem right out of storytelling and fairy tales books.
