Beirut: exhibition by Fadi Yazigi

The exhibition is entitled "No Title". The event by Syrian painter and sculptor Fadi Yazigi at the Tanit gallery, open from 10 January to 16 February, gives visitors no clue or direction, leaving their imagination free to run wild.

The artist's style is often described as a mixture of semi-figurative, expressionist and cubist, with bright colours - reds, greens, blues, etc. - standing out against neutral or coloured backgrounds thanks to the use of black, which the artist always used to detach his silhouettes from the canvas. The paintings show dismembered bodies and haggard, distraught faces. The violence of these works is set against the backdrop of war, suffering and disarray in the Arab world.
