Born in Beirut in 1965 and raised in Lebanon, artist Georges Bassil is a self-taught painter whose career began in 1995. Living and working in Amman, Jordan since 2010, Bassil’s work focuses on the human figure and captures its array of emotions. In a world that is growing increasingly fanatical, the artist recreates his environment on warm fabrics and with translucent pigments, engaging the human soul in a dialogue. His figures exist individually and in their own painted realm, lost in thought and free from external influences and judgment.
