Shams Safieddine presents his first solo exhibition as part of CATAPULT.visual’arts at Artlab
Shams Safieddine (b.1998) is a painter and visual artist. Born in Tyre, he has moved to Beirut to pursue a degree in Fine Arts at the Lebanese University and has graduated with BA in 2019. His work is inspired by personal experiences that transpire into existentialism, expressing his views on human behaviour and rationale through drawing and painting.
While currently enrolled in Beirut Printmaking Studio’s residency program, he is experimenting with different materials and forms of artistic expression; his interest in conceptual art has called for his inclusion of mediums such as sound and photography to create sensory-provoking installations and sculptures for his upcoming projects. In addition, he is working as an instructor, holding painting workshops in Beirut. Safieddine has shown at an event held by the US Embassy in Beirut (2018) and is holding his first solo exhibition at Artlab Gallery (2022)
