Hussein Madi born in 1938 in Chebaa, is a prominent Lebanese painter, sculptor and printmaker. He is best known for his colorful works inspired by abstract design and Islamic art. He studied painting at the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts in Beirut before moving to Rome in 1963 to continue his studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti. He then decided to settle in Rome where he lived for 22 years, learning various techniques from frescoes and mosaics to bronze sculpture.

“The rigidity of iron allows Madi to introduce acute triangles, pointed shapes and cutting edges. Thanks to its monochromatic rigor, iron underscores the way Madi’s sculpture aims to shed useless, contingent flourishes to be content with the combined sheer necessities of anatomy and geometry. Even in the entanglement of struggling bird bodies, strictness is maintained, and the obviousness of forms remains striking. Madi has always aspired to an art without concessions. He best reaches his aim in iron monochrome sculpture.”
