Lebanese artist Joelle Kurdy works with mixed media, producing amalgams of history and visual culture. She combines the craft of painting with that of the collage, blending and decontextualizing elements while creating new meanings and notions of expression. By pulling apart and piecing together the literal, she sheds light on the metaphorical and the ideological.


Joëlle A. Kurdy is a self- taught artist. Her inclination towards the arts started from a very young age and throughout the years she experimented with various techniques from silk painting, to charcoal drawing, acrylic to ceramics, water and oil painting. She dedicated herself to learning art techniques through private lessons with well-known artists, and travelled to numerous museums and art exhibitions around the world. She has a profound interest in spirituality, healing and the esoteric. Most of her works revolve around life's experiences, the subtle range of human emotions and the return to the self.

The artist currently lives and works in Abu Dhabi.

Artist Statement:

“My work has survived the wave of information, and remains an unpredictable source of my imagination. My art is to explore processes allowing the instinct to have its say with personal integrity. Combining images with no relationship to each other, evoking emotions and creating a dialogue between elements in perpetual movement while keeping The Conversation going."
