Check out this amazing art blog from trumpet-player Mazen Kerbaj who lives in Beirut and is chronicling the war daily through drawings. I much prefer it to the news.
Check out this drawing, it’s so fucking great
Listen to Starry Night: a beautiful piece.
Check out Witnessing (again), Laure Ghorayeb’s blog. Ghorayeb is a seventy-five year old painter, poet, and art critic for Nahar. She drew throughout the civil war and continues to draw through the current crisis. She is also Mazen’s mother.
If you know of more Lebanese artists’ blogs, drop me a line.
Thanks to I Hear A New World for the tip
