Lebanese-American artist Nabil Nahas, whose work has been exhibited all over the world, brings his striking, large-scale works—including a few new pieces—to FIAF’s Gallery.

Nahas’s pieces reflect both western modernism and classic Islamic art, and explore the concept of order emerging from disorder through vibrant color, texture, patterns, and abstract images. Inspired by the beauty of nature and the rich complexity of Middle Eastern culture, Nahas uses natural elements such as trees—in particular the cedar, symbolizing Lebanon—to present his personal vision of his homeland.
