Maher Diab is a Canadian Lebanese visual artist who excels in the use of color, texture, and form. One cannot categorize Maher’s work as 2D, because he’s continuously pushing the creative envelope of color vs. canvas and form vs. space.
Being in the presence of his art is a sensory immersive experience since his artistic expression is not something that falls within the familiar; instead, it pushes the viewer’s boundaries, either inwardly or outwardly.
His signature style lies in his sculptural approach to compositions, as well as the use of various materials to create multiple layers in his paintings, which represent the physical and mental conditions that the individual experiences on a daily basis.
Moreover, his subjects are rarely solitary and tend to portray various levels of social interactions; what ties his body of work together is the sheer vivacity and liveliness of the art piece as a whole.
Diab recently held a striking solo exhibition with Zamalek Art Gallery, where he showcased his exceptional artistic talent. Additionally, he has actively contributed to four prestigious group art exhibitions within the Arab world’s artistic scene.
