Biography

Faouzi was born in Lebanon in 1933. He grew up as the oldest of 6 siblings in a well respected family of land owners going back several generations. In his early years he was surrounded by a simple farming community steeped in the traditional values of self reliance and hard work. This humbling upbringing left an impression on Faouzi that would influence his art and writings for years to come.

Driven by a strong love for literature, language and the intellectual curiosity and expression that can be derived from them, Faouzi pursued a career as a professor of Arabic language, literature and philosophy at the prestigious International Schools of Choueifat College Preparatory. This career of more than 3 decades was accompanied by a personal pursuit in the areas of art and literature.

Over the years, Faouzi produced a steady flow of art exhibitions and books. In his art whether in oil, water color or ink, he always maintained a strong connection to people and earth. Faouzi extended the impressionistic style into his own form of artistic expression by using a bold and daring approach to color and movement.

As a writer, Faouzi covered a wide spectrum of subjects, including poetry, art critique, political commentary and socio-economic analysis. In all areas, Faouzi dared to challenge conventional thought and pre-established opinion by re-examining all the underlying accepted premises. This is proving particularly useful in the new global environment we live in.
