Chafa Ghaddar - How will it end ?
Visual artist Chafa Ghaddar (Lebanon, 1986) earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in 2007, and her master’s degree in Visual Arts in 2009, both at the Académie Libanaise des Beaux Arts (ALBA). She currently lives and works in Dubai and received the prize for painting of the Boghossian Foundation in 2014. Her works include murals, paintings, drawings, photographs and pieces in mixed media. Following the explosion, Chafa Ghaddar felt a need to reconnect with nature, to dissociate herself from the city. This translates into the series of frescoes dedicated to the cacti in her garden. She explains that, from Dubai, ‘gardening hooks her back into life’, and that moreover ‘cacti have few needs’.
