About the Artist
Ali Hassoun was born in Lebanon in 1964. In 1982, he moved to Italy to continue his studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. In 1992, he graduated from the city’s university with a degree in Architecture. He now lives and works in Dubai, UAE.
The most easily identifiable theme of his painting is travel, contributing different experiences and visions.
The artist becomes a sort of cultural translator, and different traditions can coexist in the perfectly balanced space of his colourful paintings, characters are all caught in a game of smart quotations and indirect exchanges between the main action and the background.
