Mohamad Khayata’s original figurative artworks are the result of five years of displacement and deal with themes of migration, memory, and identity. His work is a tribute to displaced people whose stories are filled with effort, hope, and serene melancholy. These aspects of his art could not be more relevant now dealing with the aftermath of the 2020 Beirut explosion. Mohamad’s studio was destroyed as a result and many of his artworks were damaged. Mohamad’s art is an expression of his spirit and also his livelihood.
Khayata created this large original painting with acrylic on canvas. It is 79 inches tall by 63 inches wide. This artwork was created just prior to the blast and then carefully restored by Mohamad after the blast. It is signed by the artist on the back of the canvas. This painting is stretched, wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included with this original work.
