Born in 1971 in Jordan, Rafik 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 unfinished
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
