The art of the painter, sculptor and printmaker Hussein Madi has been viewed by thousands of people around the world, however, it has never before been made available as a published retrospective. This long-overdue book contains an invaluable overview of the Lebanese-born Madi's work of four decades, in which his intensely personal fusion of European and Islamic influences always presents itself with a force that is at once both arresting and subtle.
Madi's joyful experiments in color and form have resulted in a unique body of work that relates to modern artists like Matisse and Picasso as well as to the principles of divine harmony that inform the abstract designs of Islamic art. This book--with over 500 color plates--will serve as a touchstone for both long-time admirers and initiates to his oeuvre.
Hussein Madi was born in 1938 in Chebaa, Lebanon. Painter, sculptor and printmaker, he is considered among the Arab world's foremost artists and has had more than 60 solo exhibitions worldwide.
