About the artwork
The artist, who was born in Senegal but has been living in his native Lebanon since the 1990s, has spent most of his artistic career creating a bizarre visual lexicon. His characters are both human and animal and have exaggerated body parts.
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.
