Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

Born in Deir el Qamar, Lebanon, Laure Ghorayeb creates intricate and extremely detailed ink drawings that represent chronicles of her life and records of the events and people that marked her. Reminiscent of Western comic books and of Arabic calligraphy’s sinuous intersecting lines, the works are sometimes overlaid with found objects and archive photographs. They read like stories with evident political undertones: Ghorayeb seeks to promote freedom and denounce political conflict in her country.


Since the sixties, Ghorayeb regularly exhibits her drawings in Lebanon, in solo and group shows. She has also been featured in the Paris, Bagdad and Alexandria (Egypt) Biennales, and has taken part in collective exhibitions and art fairs across Europe and the Middle East, including Art Paris, ArtParis Abu Dhabi (2007) and Art Dubai (2009-2011).


In parallel to her artistic career, Ghorayeb regularly contributes art reviews to the Lebanese press, and has published poems, novellas and artist books. The latest, 33 Jours, was the result of a collaboration with her son Mazen Kerbaj and dealt with their experience of the July 2006 war in Beirut.
