Artist Wael K. Hamadeh – portfolio
When we try to understand the history of any a country, we find that the history of its art greatly defines its identity.
For the love of his Lebanese heritage and its rich multiple facets,
Wael stands faithfully as he brushes away the dust from the forgotten majestic colors of his beloved country,
reawakening the glory they once represented, through his oriental
surrealism paintings and sculptures. Despite all the pain that Lebanon is passing through,
Hamadeh continues vividly brushing his strokes with colors of heritage merged with
stories of rich folklore. Through his work, you see the resilience of the Lebanese… the rebirth of the Phoenix.
Painting after painting, art piece after art piece, Wael’s work refocuses the spotlight on the beauty inspired by the memory he has of the steeped
mountain region he comes from. There, rocks stand guards to a natural paradise and olive trees dance with the breeze of the valley… His magical
color mix pulls you back to remind you of the freshness of the soil, hardness of the rock and vibrancy of mesmerizing scenes.
Living in Dubai since 1995, Hamadeh engraved his name as an accomplished artist through his new line of exceptional work that carries
his signature. Having been a member of a university folklore varsity team, Hamadeh’s mind and art is a safe preserving the intricate details of
the rich heritage of the Lebanese villagers and farmers. Those people come alive in his art as he appoints them ambassadors to the universe.
Wael is a life-long learner; After receiving an Art diploma from Edinburgh- Scotland, he started a self-taught discovery of his inner
creation through brush and color. His works are spread among many reputable companies, hotels, restaurants, and a private collector.
“My passion to paint the movement and contrast of who we are is a nonstop adrenaline rush. I crave knowledge of my surrealistic brush and
enrich my style to be a brand that upholds our values and honors our existentialism.
My name is Wael K.Hamadeh my nationality is Lebanese, and the
universe is my family.”
