Born in Beirut in 1979, Dyala Khodary graduated from the Lebanese University Institute of Fine Arts in 2002. Her work combines various aesthetic and decorative tendencies. She participated in several renowned exhibitions including “Salons D’Automne” at Sursock Museum, where she showcased some of her early paintings. Her art is conceptual in content and figurative in representation: she juggles with the complexities of surfaces and the emotional characteristics of places. For her second solo-exhibition at Art on 56th, Khodary will be examining the city from architectural and sentimental perspectives.
