Born in Beirut in 1983, Ihab Ahmad graduated in Visual Communication Art from the Lebanese University.
Ihab’s work is diverse – In addition to acrylic & collage on canvas,
he developed a symbiotic relationship with his intriguing natural geometric symbols
such as fish, eyes, trees, all of which emerged as an intense & bright abstraction.
This connection is entrenched in his determination to defy his childhood memories of war.
His joyful art & affinity with color became a powerful message of optimism.
Every work has the potential to reveal the artist’s psyche.
The symbols elaborated on his canvas trigger the imagination of the viewer,
a dialogue with the surreal, and an open ended horizon of contemplation & decoding.
