Rafik Majzoub

Born in 1971 - Lebanon


Born in 1971 in Jordan, Rak Majzoub is a distinguished Lebanese painter and graphic artist,
whose fame, successfully managed to disperse beyond his city of adoption. His paintings
are raw, sarcastic and tense, displaying angular, tortured faces as though they were visual
translations of Tom Waits’ songs. Majzoub is a self-taught “outsider artist” who claimed an
important role in the Lebanese art scene. His contemporary paintings are focused on
a character in perpetual quest for himself. Each trait, tonality, drawing
and brushstroke leaves an impact, creating the illusion of a work in progress.
The unnished quality of the canvas resonates with the essential incapacity of the human being
to accomplish in a world of imperfection, fracture and fragmentation. Majzoub’s
dexterity thrives through tension, impatience and velocity. He favors carelessness of the
exact calculated detail over the improvised and expressive.
The artist currently lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon.
