About the artwork
The multidisciplinary practice of Lebanese artist and architect Nadim Karam incorporates painting, drawing, sculpture, and writing in the creation of monumental imagery, artistic interventions, and conceptual proposals that argue for the social potential of futurist and alternative spaces, particularly those built on dreams. Drawing from a variety of cultural discourses, Karam has fashioned a distinct pictorial language that is based on an evolving series of characters, symbols, and settings, as he narrates the past, present, and future while working towards the reconfiguration of space.
About the artist
Lebanese artist and architect Nadim Karam’s multi-disciplinary approach
incorporates painting, drawing, sculpture and writing. Fusing various
cultural influences, Karam’s works transcend social, political and
national borders, forming a unique pictorial language replete with
recurring symbols and with original characters and narratives.
They form an alphabet of sorts, in what is an ongoing, sometimes
absurdist, exploration of the creative power of dreams. Renowned for his public art and work in urban regeneration, Karam was recently lauded for his architectural plan, The Cloud,
which made international headlines for its revolutionary ideas on how
to reconfigure public space amidst Dubai’s growing cityscape.
