Michel El Hachem an Artist I Just Discovered and Really Like

About Michel El Hachem

Born on March 20, 1989
Short Description
    Self-Taught artist from Lebanon.

    Self-Taught artist from Beirut, Lebanon.

I came across Michel El Hachem work on Facebook the other day.  It doesn't look like he has a gallery representing him but he does have a couple of pages that you can look at.

I wanted to share his art because it's funny, well executed, stylish and deals with paint and formal issues of painting in a way that I really really like.

He also seems to have his finger on the pulse of what's going on in the art world so I think you might want to check him out.

Here's some of his work.
