The Lebanese-American artist Will Salha is participating in the Recordum Exhibition, which is held in Venice, Italy until September 18, 2022.
The Washington D.C.-based artist who is representing both Lebanon and USA is inspired by nature’s beauty around him, using bold and bright hues to make his art unique with lively impressions.
His paintings at the Recordum Exhibition are part of a collection inspired by the philosophy of the late Lebanese poet Gibran Khalil Gibran in his book The Prophet, published in 1923.
The Prophet has been translated into more than 100 different languages, making it one of the most translated books and one of the bestselling books of all time.
Consequently, Will Salha’s paintings are a contemplation of life and emotions and send a message to the youth of the future on how to deal with all aspects of life through expressive colors.
Salha’s artistic style is inspired by his childhood years, as he grew up in the Lebanese town of Ras el-Matn, surrounded by nature, culture, and history.
As reported by the state-run National News Agency, he expressed that his “paintings appeal to visitors who distinguish them among the many paintings by artists from 30 countries.”
“I thank God for this success in the exhibitions between Italy and Washington, where I sold more than 40 paintings last year, during which I participated in more than six exhibitions,” he added.
