Maher Diab is a Canadian Lebanese visual artist who masters the use of colour, texture and form. One cannot categorize Maher’s work as 2D, because he’s continuously pushing the creative envelope of colour vs canvas and form vs space. Being in the presence of his art is a sensory immersive experience. His artistic expression is not something that falls within the familiar; instead, it pushes the viewer’s boundaries, either inwardly or outwardly. His signature style lies in his sculptural approach to compositions. Also, the use of different mediums creates multiple layering in his paintings, which to him resemble the various physical and emotional levels one encounters on a daily basis. His subjects are almost never solitary and tend to portray various levels of social interactions. What ties his body of work together is the sheer vivacity and liveliness of the art piece as a whole. When looking through his bodywork, one cannot miss a dominant feature that repeats itself in various forms: the eyes. You feel you’re constantly being watched, by others, or simply invites the viewer to be more introspective and pay closer attention to their inner emotions and self.
