Fairouz is lebanon’s chanteuse extraordinaire: loved, iconized, and graffitied. I love this stenciled image of her that I came across as I meandered through the gemmayze neighborhood of beirut, now famous for it’s rare preserved beirut homes many of which are converted into restaurants serving fabulous food such as the armenian mayrig!
The beirut art expo taking place the weekend I arrived was jam packed with a huge variety of art to suit anyone’s taste: from comics to Indian art to video installations, such as this one by artist hannia ferrell.
Truly an indication of the great diversity of beirut! So happy to be here at this moment in time. At the art expo an idea came to me for a creative project…watch for my next post!
