Christopher Rizkallah | Aftertaste

The Beirut Art Residency (BAR) is pleased to announce ‘Aftertaste’, an exhibition featuring the recent paintings of emerging Lebanese artist, Christopher Rizkallah. Furthering our mission to exist as an artist-run residency, part of BAR’s annual program is to showcase talents from within the organization.

About the artist
Christopher Rizkallah completed his Bachelor of Art in Studio Arts at the American University of Beirut. He was awarded the M&C Saatchi MENA Award granted to the student with the most potential in order to encourage their artistic practice.
As part of a generation of artists born after 1990, a year that saw the universal availability of the Internet, the nature of Chris’s work echoes the digital age. His portrait method is initiated by pictures taken from his phone, embracing natural glitches, and referencing them whilst painting.
