SARA ABOU MRAD, Lebanon (1988)
Born in Beirut in 1988, Sara Bou Mrad is a Lebanese contemporary artist who graduated from Fine Arts from the Lebanese University. Using a wide range of techniques for her painted and sculpted works, the artist depicts a fantasy world in which human figures and animals meet. The colorful imagery world, which could be seen in the collection called ‘Matilda’, is also an expression of the artist’s personal experiences. Sara Bou Mrad is also committed in educational programs. In 2010, she founded the art department at the École Sainte-Anne des Soeurs de Besançon in Beirut and taught art in the establishment for ten years. In 2016, Bou Mrad founded an art-based program sponsored by ‘Empowerment Through Integration Foundation’, training blind children to encourage their integration into society. In 2019, Bou Mrad executed the work Le Retour du Phénix, highly inspired by the protest movement in Lebanon and located in front of the Grand Théâtre in Beirut. One year later, she benefited from a scholarship from the Institut français du Liban to reside at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris for four months. Sara Bou Mrad is based in Beirut and is also represented by the Galerie Claude Lemand in Paris, where she had her first solo exhibition in fall 2021.
