Ali Hassoun is a gifted figurative painter who has lived and breathed his art since his early years in Lebanon. His studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and his extensive stay in Italy for over 35 years honed his skills and allowed him to delve deeper into the history of art.
Hassoun’s travels between East and West culminated in his move to Dubai, where he synthesized multiple identities into his paintings. His works feature conceptual elements, pop art, and surrealism with multiple layers of interpretation, earning him the title of “new magical realism” by international museum curator Maurizio Vanni.
Throughout his career, Hassoun has displayed his work in prestigious galleries and art fairs across Europe and internationally, and he has recently been invited to participate in museum projects in Italy. He continues to captivate audiences with his unique and thought-provoking art.
