Vanessa Gemayel is a Lebanese American painter, writer, and DJ. She was born in Paris in 1985 and is currently based in Beirut.
Gemayel paints with refined naivety. Her work captures Lebanon’s urban landscape and all the different textures and colours which inhabit it. Art historian Jean-Dominique Jacquemond has described Gemayel’s colouration as ‘luminous’. The artist paints in the composite perspective; compiling several 1st person perspectives onto one image and tackling the simultaneous flatness and depth of the medium of painting.
