A vortex of color and light welcomes visitors entering "Watercolors," the exhibition now up at Agial Art Gallery off Hamra. With this collection of 30 watercolors, realized over the course of a year, Oussama Baalbaki presents inspiring glimpses of Lebanon, encountered during his long habitual walks in and around Beirut.The artist seeks to lure people's attention to ordinary elements from everyday life that are often neglected.These pieces focus equally on some aspects of Lebanon that, in Baalbaki's view, distinguish it from other places.Due to the difficulty in making corrections, watercolor technique requires a great mastery of the brush and close attention while painting.Despite these challenges, Baalbaki's creativity flows freely onto the canvas, giving shape to a variety of representations that stimulate different reflections.
