Art Space Dubai presents ‘Pulse’ by Lebanese artist Charbel Aoun from Feb. 7- Mar. 5
Charbel Samuel Aoun is an architect, sculptor and painter from Fanar, Lebanon. Believing art to be a calling, he retired as an architect to focus on art. He considers himself a realist expressing the state of humanity as he sees it through his art. His goal through his work is to evoke reactions from his audience as a truth seeker as opposed to creating art merely to please or amuse the viewer. His art is dark, thick with emotion and awe-inspiring and therefore confronts the viewer. In 2007 he exhibited at CCF Beirut “Out of Space”, a sculpture exhibition where forms extended out of their physical space once again confronting the viewer, by extending into their personal space.
In 2009 he had 2 painting exhibitions “Mourasshah Intikhabi” and “Fattoush Beirut” in which he reflected deep feelings of his society. In 2010 he exhibited at the Artlounge Beirut “Flows”, a trip through light and energy; a theme also prevalent in this work.
“A painting is a symphony composed by the emotions and the combination of its various actions. In its space I end up deciphering exactly my printed feelings, when the social impact touches me with its negativity, I paint the tension of suffering and poverty, the emotions of the streets. In this stress, my imagination and the light within are always present to interfere; a dialogue between the social tension and imaginary light exists…
Through this mixture of feelings I decode the language of art, how to interact with abstraction and speak truth through lines , forms, depth, light, colors… all combined together to translate my energy .
En 2009, sa peinture s’ouvre à l’environnement extérieur et à la ville qui a subi la guerre et a perdu aussi d’une certaine façon son identité face au capitalisme envaMy inspiration exists in the interaction of the timeless state of humanity and the temporal reality of our society…”
