Hailing from the al- Basha family, a family well known for leaving an indelible mark on Lebanese music, Amin al -Basha is renowned for the mysterious harmony of his paintings.
Born in Beirut in 1932, al –Basha began drawing at an early age, and soon became a student of the Bulgarian painter, Stevan Locus. Upon graduating from the Lebanese Academy of Arts, he received a scholarship from the Higher National School of Fine Arts in Paris. Granted many awards for his distinguished artwork, al-Basha represented Lebanon in the first Paris Biennial in 1958 and in the Alexandria Biennial in 1962.
Al- Basha has two art studios, one in Beirut and the other in Paris. His paintings, created in Beirut and Paris, greatly resemble the musical scale, where a mantra is repeated vigorously with clarity. His artistic technique, forged in Paris, and his intellectual clarity, are clearly reflected in his work.
