Oil Pastel on Paper

Born in Beirut, Henry Jabbour graduated from New York Academy of Art where he obtained a Master of Fine Art in Painting and Printmaking.  
Jabbour's artistic process embraces both the familiar and the unexpected, combining close study and observation with memory and intuition. This approach creates vastly beguiling paintings, distant yet familiar, as though entering a half-remembered room and lingering in the masterfully curated atmosphere. His work looks to subvert the specific in search of the universal. Each piece is a quest beyond the facade of appearance, attempting to connect the vulnerability, fragility and impermanence of the individual with a sense of common and shared humanity.

About the postcard artworks 

These works were created from memory in response to imagined imagery of self, landscape and colours that are imprinted in me from my youth. They reconnect me with the warmth and openness of the Mediterranean.
