Lebanese artist Nabil Nahas has firmly established himself as a pioneer of abstraction through his unique use of color, texture and complex composition to create spellbinding canvases. Nahas received his MFA from Yale University in 1973, and although formally trained in Western painting, his work is inspired by a multiplicity of sources including nature and the geometric patterns like those that can be found in the decorative Islamic art of his birth city, Beirut. His most famous and innovative works are created by dense layers of acrylic paint, texturized with powered pumice and pigmented with vibrant colors. This technique creates a splendid visual effect as the works appear otherworldly but also organic—as if they had been extracted from coral or a meteor. More on Nabil Nahas
