|The sun, the sea, the sky - Henri Asmar (Acrylic on canvas)|
|Lizard King - Henri Asmar (Acrylic and spray paint on canvas)|
In his own words, Asmar says: "I think architecture is a culmination of many elements working together to create a project. You have to be a thinker, a poet, an artist, a sculptor, a photographer, a scientist, a lover, a hater, a philosopher, a partygoer, a dancer, a businessman, a politician, alive" and as his architectural thinking becomes artistic works, it is no wonder they blend all these elements into large scale canvas. Collectors already snapped up some of the pieces - and agreed to lend them from their private collections for the exhibition.
Disclosure: Henri is a second degree cousin, but my text and appreciation are independent of our blood relation.
