It all started with a painting on a canvas on a confined day and the passion for art of two friends: Carole & Yara. The idea to promote art, women art and contribute to the development of Lebanon creative economy that is a distinctive facet of the country came to mind afterward like an evidence.
Season after Season, Artists of Beirut discovered talents, nurtured them and developed their potential to include not only art pieces, but artistic objects as well to decorate every home in Lebanon and abroad, a socially responsible concept supporting the restoration and embellishment of Beirut, as a tribute to the authentic beauty of the city.
