Marwan Chamaa’s career began
in the mid eighties
and continues to metamorphose to this day.
Throughout his artistic journey, Marwan’s muse has
always been his environment.
Marwan resided in many diverse settings such as
Munich, New York, and Beirut.
As his renditions of his surroundings have been reinvented in terms of styles,
he has always remained true to capturing and interpreting
his world as he sees it to his audience.
In the span of his career he has chosen
to highlight life in New York,
to pay tribute to old Beirut,
to represent the consumerism of our fast paced society,
to venerate un-requited love and passion,
and even to reflect on current affairs.
Marwan has used a variety of
artistic styles for each of his series.
He embodies the traits of
a paparazzi, storyteller, and an epicurean.
