According to Tom, “The contrasts of joy and pain, beauty and ugliness are magnified here. I think that is why I like painting in Lebanon so much. Out of all the places I’ve been to in the world, this is where contrasts of life are most graphics.”
Young is also interested in preserving the beautiful Lebanese heritage. That is clearly apparent in his paintings of old abandoned palaces and houses. He often hosts exhibitions of his arts in prominent places like the Grand Hotel of Sawfar.
