Born in 1974 Semaan Khawam continues to live and work in Beirut.
The self-taught multidisciplinary Khawam is a painter, svulptor, graffiti and installation an artist
whose work is informed by the daily reality of the city that he lives in.
Khawam's uses his work to draw attention to political contradictions, social injustice,
the lack of cultural appreciation, and other uncomfortable realities.
Early in 2012, he spray-painted an armed soldier on a wall in gemmayzeh
to remind people of the act drew international attention to the limits on free
speech and artistic expression that Khawam and other Lebanese artist work
within inadvertently but also ironically reinforcing his earlier messages
