Works by Rabih Khalil

Born in 1974 in Beirut, Rabih Khalil is a Lebanese-Brasilian artist and art theorist. He pursued his studies at the Lebanese University (IBA II) from which he graduated in 1995  with a BFA in Painting and Drawing. He finalized his first Master’s degree in the same field in 2011 and his second in 2014 researching Art Science at the Doctorate School of Art  (Lebanese University). In 2020, He crowned his studies with a PHD in Art Science at the  aforementioned school. Alongside his teaching career (schools and universities), he developed a painting style that  expresses simultaneously intimate emotions, sexual desires and metaphysical thoughts. His  passion for literature and philosophy added an extra dimension to his pictorial  experimentations and led him to create a manifesto about a form of non-existing art : the Art  Sans Medium (ASM) or Art Without Medium. He exhibited his ASM artworks in different  locations along with artists like Chaouki Chamoun, Samir Khaddagj, Saloua Raouda  Choucair, Mona Hatoum and others. 
Rabih Khalil is currently living and working in Beirut
