HUSSEIN MADI II
Hussein Madi’s iconic style of oversized geometric figures, sensual yet with primal lines also reflects the influence of European modern art masters such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. On the other hand, his structured abstract works, with a timeless aesthetic and a harmony of colour and form include the repetition of motifs with rounded edges that draw on the abstract designs of Islamic art.
Madi has lived between Rome and Beirut from 1973 to 1986. Since then, he has been living in Beirut and continues to be one of Lebanon's most celebrated artists with a wide international recognition.
