Georges Bassil was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1965 and is a self-taught artist who began his career in 1995. Throughout his entire life, Bassil has been creating art but his creative talents manifested through painting. As an autodidact, he has relied on both his emotions and his inspirations to guide the flow of his works.
Bassil’s artwork tends to highlight human figures, with a focus on female forms and the emotions relayed through their features. He engages the human soul in a discourse through his use of transparency and his light use of pigments, which allows him to express elements of transience and a connection with the ether. In a world that grows increasingly zealous, he recreates his visions on warm fabrics with figures that are indifferent to the stares and scrutiny of viewers, existing in their own world, lost in
their thoughts and feelings; without judgment, they exist. Georges has held several exhibitions throughout the years in Dubai, Jordan and Lebanon.
