Wala’aneh Beirut (Dual Realities) // Nadine Kanso

May 19, 2009

Meet Nadine Kanso, a Lebanese artist and photographer who currently resides in Dubai. Nadine majored in Communication Arts and Advertising Design which ultimately paved the way for her work in design and photography. She is also the founder of a jewelry line called Bil Arabi, which uses arabic letters as the form for 18-carat gold jewelry. Simply beautiful!

Nadine’s work explores the concept of being Arab in today’s world, “showing that what binds and defines Arabs extends far beyond a single static definition and instead is a constantly changing, dynamic process.”

Nadine’s latest exhibition, an installation titled Wala’aneh Beirut, was featured in Al Bastakiya Art Fair, Dubai, UAE . The prints combine photos of Beirut nightlife and street art to make a statement about Beirut’s cultural identity.

    Love it! The grayscale pics and the bright clubbing shots contrast beautifully 🙂 Wish we could see something like this in Kuwait!

    I love how every street art picture is kind of related to the picture in the club.
