Nabil Nahas

Artist Biography

Born 1949 in Beirut, Lebanon, Nabil Nahas lives and works in New York and Lebanon.

Nature and Islamic culture are the two most consistent sources of inspiration in his painting. Olive trees, Palm trees and Cedars became part of his painterly world by a personal experience: while planting trees in his Lebanese garden he discovered an urge to paint them. In his work Nabil Nahas transformes these trees, being significant symbols of his homeland, into iconic images. The use of gold reflects his influences from Icons to Islamic Art and is quite common in the Orient. The blue represents the Mediterranean sky which is very present in these series of new work.

The exhibition in Galerie Tanit is the first solo show of Nabil Nahas in Germany.

Nabil Nahas is represented by Galerie Tanit Munich.
