The Daily Star: Baalbaki on the sincerity of painting

A Daily Star article discussing Oussama Baalbaki’s latest exhibition at the Agial Gallery

“He’s really a poet and a thinker,” says his gallerist, Saleh Barakat, sounding more like a mother or a matchmaker. “He’s a very interesting man. He’s very deep in times when everything is superficial.”

“What gives his work strength is not the technical dexterity with which he paints his own face and body but rather the tension he creates between himself, as a stand-in for the human condition, and a broad range of objects and gestures.” (from article bel0w)
