About Marwan Rechmaoui
Marwan Rechmaoui is a Lebanese artist of Palestinian origin, who lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon. As an influential, politically engaged and unique artist, his work is marked by depth and verisimilitude. Rechmaoui is best known for his sculptural works replicating city buildings and the topography of Beirut.The work of Rechmaoui, though sculptural, three-dimensional and industrial in the raw material it employs for its finished objects, it is never intrusive rather, it emotes a great deal of inclusiveness and tenderness.
