Meet Tom Young a deeply committed artist who draws his inspiration from Lebanon’s heritage, mainly old abandoned houses and buildings. In the hopes that art can help us preserve, honour and save some of them.
Young is best known for his Rose House project a few years back (a painting residency in the big rose mansion overlooking the Corniche). His new exhibit will be at the Sofar Grand Hotel (Sept 16th – October 14th) where he has been working and painting since February. It will feature “rare items salvaged from the original hotel as well as performances by students from nearby schools.” Check it out!
