Collection: Print on Canvas by Joseph Matar

Lebanese Artist Joseph Matar, is a great humanist, born of the piercing sun and glowing luminosity of the Orient. He is a poet and creative spirit, matured in the universities, workshops and museums of Europe, Spain, France and Italy. His is the Eastern soul out to conquer the genius of the West, a human flame with mystic roots in the divine. 

Creative artist, theorist and technician, free of all burden of system, he seeks to express himself in light! To him blind chance and obscurity are repugnant. On every canvas, the interplay of line, colour and volume falls into place of hard struggle, like the victory of a strategist or like some great symphony! Here is “a nest of verdure where a house rings out a melody” and there is a whole village rapt in contemplation of the sea. Beyond stands a vigorous tree that offers the bounty of its fruit. In yet another place one sees an immense sun beating down on the plain, a family around a newborn babe, or the golden glory of an ascending crowd.

Joseph Matar is a master of many artistic fields and pictorial techniques portraiture, anatomy, landscape and history, and above all sacred art brought to life with a new inspiration. He is master of many media, oils, water-color, pastels, ink and pencil…

When he welcomes you at Eddé-Byblos, you feel yourself in the studio of some great figure of the Renaissance, abounding in creative energy. An experience awaits you that will leave its imprint in the depths of your psyche.
