Say ‘Ras El-abed’ or ‘Bonjus’ to any Lebanese and you’ll immediately get a smile.
I generally like art in all its form, and I particularly like to see artists using Lebanese pop culture symbolisms in their art. I think it’s one way of preserving pop culture, so to speak. I ran into the work of a Lebanese artist called Rana Salam when I was browsing art centers and expos in Lebanon. Enjoy!
Capturing Culture is an exhibition of graphic designer Rana Salam’s unique products inspired by personal treasures of hers. The exhibition is taking place at Beirut Art Center from November 25 until December 11, 2010.
And Rana Salam also has an e-store Mishmaoul here. Personally, the products are a little overpriced, especially that the prices are in British Pound!
