Maroun Hakim

Born in Mazraat Yachouch, Metn, Lebanon in 1950. Maroun Hakim holds a Master degree in drawing and painting from Lebanese University in 1975, then earned a Master degree in cermaics from Faculty of Applied Arts, Rome, Italy. He is neither a painter only nor a sculptor only, he is both. His relationship with Nature, his homeland Lebanon, his village Mazraat Yachouh, color, and stone or wood are all vital to a flux of creative work that is in a continuous evolution.

He never stops experimenting in textures or in mediums of expression whether acrylic, watercolor, oil, pastel or gouache, breathing into them the richness and passionate variations of his vision and spirit.

Maroun never forgets his sculptor talent in the game of lines and virtual volumes as he
periodically alters between varieties of stone, marble, wood and steel.
Over the years, Maroun had thirty five solo shows in Lebanon and abroad. He had aslo
exhibited in several collective shows in his homeland, Bahrain, UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Canada and Switzerland. He was also a professor at the Lebanese University - Fine Arts Institute II, president of the Lebanese Painters and Sculptors Association and president of the Lebanese Fine Artists Syndicate. 

He is currently fully dedicated to his Art, spending most of his time creating inside the comfort of his studio located in his hometown Mazraat Yachouh, Lebanon.
