Lebanese fine artist Majida Nasreddine is one of the leading female painters to have made a name for herself in the 1990s.
Born and raised in Lebanon, Nasreddine has made UAE’s northern emirate of Sharjah her home and workplace for over 10 years now.
She got into art at an early age, painting with chalk, beetroot, onion and even coffee, the only resources available to her then.
“When I first started to paint, I used to pick a small photo, enlarge it and then draw the same with pencil. That was our alphabets,“ said Nasreddine.
However as she grew, her artwork became mainly inspired by politics. She was so shocked by the recent conflicts in Lebanon that she started to use color to express the pain, violence and sufferings of the children.
Nasreddine’s paintings depict certain events with a high degree of balance in colors, sensitively and accurately.
“On many occasions, I hear colors rather than see them,” said Nasreddine.
Politics have been reflected in several exhibitions in the past and she too wants to communicate important messages in her art.
“The war in Lebanon left a deep impact, and gave me the impetus to work industriously,” said Nasreddine.
Naserddine has participated in a number of group exhibitions in Lebanon, the UAE and abroad and she has held several independent exhibitions as well. More recently, she has been working on a new project that will be displayed in one of the UAE galleries.
