    About this artwork
    This artwork is part of the ‘Jazz Portraits’ series done between 2009 and 2012 and features in the book Jazz Pulse published in 2018. Often reflecting on the environment that surrounds her, Greta Naufal experiments with various media including painting, printing techniques, video and installation. As one of the artists from the ‘war generation’ with a distinctive expressionist style, Greta Naufal produces work in direct relation with the city she lives in and the times often reflecting on conflict and media, human resilience, body and identity. She also finds inspiration in jazz as a movement against oppression, and its legendary musicians who have strived for change. Whether through interrogating her fluctuating relationship with Beirut, or through exploring the human condition, or through denouncing violence under all its forms, Greta Naufal’s artworks remain strongly rooted in the contemporary space and time which we live in and never fail to surprise with their poetry and power of intuition.
