Charbel Samuel Aoun

Dubai’s Renowned Artspace Gallery Proudly Presents Lebanses Artist “Charbel Samuel Aoun”

A diverse and moving exhibition of contemporary paintings by Charbel Samuel Aoun.

Dubai February 2011 – Artspace Gallery is pleased to be showcasing an innovative selection of works by the Lebanese artist Charbel Samuel Aoun at an exhibition that is taking place from the 7th of February to 5thth of March 2011.

Charbel Samuel Aoun is an architect, sculptor and painter from Fanar, Lebanon. Believing art to be a calling, he retired as an architect to focus on art. He considers himself a realist expressing the state of humanity as he sees it through his art. His goal through his work is to evoke reactions from his audience as a truth seeker as opposed to creating art merely to please or amuse the viewer. His art is dark, thick with emotion and awe-inspiring and therefore confronts the viewer. In 2007 he exhibited at CCF Beirut “out of space”, a sculpture exhibition where forms extended out of their physical space once again confronting the viewer, by extending into their personal space. In 2009 he had 2 painting exhibitions “mourasshah intikhabi” and “fattoush Beirut” in which he reflected deep feelings of his society. In 2010 he exhibited at the Artlounge Beirut “Flows”, a trip through light and energy; a theme also prevalent in this work.
