Ghassan Zard (b.1954, Lebanon) is a painter and sculptor based in Beirut. He has participated in multiple group shows such as “Vous avez dit abstrait?” Galerie Tanit, Beirut, 2013. Initially, his painting was influenced by lyrical abstraction. His large-scale canvases depict a coloured rhythmic universe reminiscent of music partitions. Compared to his pictorial work, his sculptures are more restrained but always tinted with irony.
