For more than fourty five years now, Maroun El Hakim has been working in painting and sculpting with the same natural ease and more importantly with the same love.
He is neither a painter only nor a sculptor only, he is both. His relationship with Nature, his homeland Lebanon, his village Mazraat Yachouh, color and with stone or wood are all vital to a flux of creative work that is in a continuous evolution.
He never stops experimenting in textures or in mediums of expression whether acrylic, watercolor, oil, pastel or gouache, breathing into them the richness and passionate variations of his soul and spirit.
Maroun never forgets his sculptor talent in the game of lines and virtual volumes as he peridodically shifts to Lebanese stone, white marble, or wood.
He currently is fully dedicated to his Art, spending most of his time creating at his “Atelier du Bonheur” in his hometown Mazraat Yachouh, Lebanon.

“Patience, insistence,
observation, analysis and play
are the characteristics of my work.”
