* Madi's drawings are filled with symbols and rich with artistic conventions in simplified forms; they are an enchanted script, a resume of figurative art' Joseph Silvaggi * ' ... a milestone for Lebanese art in particular and art from the Arab and Islamic world in general.' The Daily Star

Reseña del editor:

The art of the painter, sculptor and printmaker Hussein Madi has been exhibited worldwide, at such venues as the British Museum, the Venice Biennale and Tokyo's Ueno Museum. This long-overdue published retrospective contains an invaluable overview of the Lebanese-born Madi's work over the past four decades, in which his intensely personal fusion of European and Islamic influences presents itself with a force that is both arresting and subtle. Madi's joyful experiments in colour and form have resulted in a unique body of work that is influenced by the likes of Matisse and Picasso, as well as the principles of divine harmony that inform the abstract designs of Islamic art. Whether in two or three dimensions, Madi's lines sing with a spontaneous freedom that belies the careful, even exacting, calculations that the artist invests in each work. This combination of meticulousness and sensuality is everywhere evident, inspired by his profound belief in 'God's universal order, in which everything is different and yet composed of the same cosmic elements.' A tireless and highly prolific artist, Madi has produced countless works in a variety of media. This book - with over 500 colour plates - will serve as a touchstone for both long-time admirers and initiates to his oeuvre.
