Born in 1979, Saida, Lebanon, Tagreed Darghouth earned a diploma in art education and studied fine arts at the Lebanese University in Beirut.
She then went on to study space art at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Tagreed’s social and political themes draw attention to hidden forms of violence and misconception of the other. For example, in her “Canticle of Death” exhibition, 2011, her paintings drew attention to the irony of the contrast between the colorful innuendos given to weapons of mass destruction and their lethal purposes.
Tagreed has exhibited in solo and group shows that have taken her all over the globe from Singapore, Buenos Aires, Paris, Istanbul, Dubai, London, Munich, Miami, New York and Brussels. She attended Ayloul's summer academy for young Arab artists at Darat al Funun, directed by artist Marwan Kassab Bashi, in Amman, Jordan in 2001. She currently works and lives in Beirut, Lebanon.
