About Habib Fadel
Born in Lebanon in 1968, Habib Fadel spent most of his childhood and adolescence in boarding school in France and Switzerland to escape the war. Back to Lebanon in 1987, he graduated from Beirut University College (now LAU) with a BA in Business Management. After a few months working in the family business, he realized that his passion laid somewhere else. It was the vast world of art that captivated him. After working all over the world, Fadel started studying drawing and painting at UCLA. In 2003 he returned to Lebanon to set up his workshop in Beirut and in 2012, Fadel held his first solo exhibition War, school and faces at Alice Mogabgab Gallery in Beirut. The exhibition showcased 25 of his most recent paintings. In 2013 Fadel had another solo exhibition “Visages et regards” in Paris at Galerie Loegenhoek and also participated in Art fairs such as Art Paris. Fadel sold his first painting at Christie’s Paris in November 2014.
