MARIA KASSAB

You cannot begin to imagine how happy we are to finally present Lebanese artist Maria Kassab on theliteroom.com. Maria is a visual artist most notable for her works in photo manipulation and collage. She studied communication arts at the Lebanese American University with a minor in Fine Arts. 

Her works are deeply rooted in and inspired by the political climate of Lebanon and her youth in Montreal. Her layered aesthetic recalls these experiences as these literal superimpositions reconcile her personal history and the Western attitudes realized during her time abroad. Her collages recall the Dadaist Hannah Hoch, whom she cites as an influence, she constructs a contemporaneous identity affected by the illogical and surreal offering a new vision of a more malleable humanity via the use of societal icons and imagery. 
Maria's works have been exhibited in Beirut (her hometown), Paris, New York, and Berlin.
