MANSOUR Théo

Exhibits at Beirut Exhibition Center

Théo Mansour moved to Paris at the beginning of the Lebanese civil war to study at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Since the end of the war, he lives and works in his hometown of Beirut.

 

Mansour started his artistic career in the early nineties, right after the end of the war. He exorcised his traumatism of the war by painting series of abstract paintings referencing mass graves, seeking to criticize universal cruelty in times of war. In the mid-nineties, he abandoned abstraction and the painting of death to create imaginary ideal worlds, where art meets music in poetic scenes and lovers interact in jewel-coloured landscapes. Through very dense canvases, Mansour transfigures musical and mythological themes, all the while celebrating the beauty of the human body and of nature.

 

Mansour has been featured in numerous collective exhibitions in Beirut, Paris, Abu Dhabi, Brussels and London (Lebanon, The Artist’s View II, 2004). His solo shows have taken place in Beirut, where he was awarded the Young Artists Prize at the Musée Sursock’s Salon d’Automne in 1996.
