Saloua Raouda Choucair: Modern Arab Design
Saloua Raouda Choucair was a pioneer of abstract art in the Middle East. Fascinated by Sufi geometry and the concept of infinity, the Lebanese painter and sculptor helped shape thinking about design processes and production, creating artworks that are both modern and Arabic.
Her particular interest was in developing interlocking shapes and building modular forms while exploring, manipulating, and combining new materials for both art objects and design products.
This monograph by art historian Yasmine Nachabe Taan is dedicated to Choucair’s multifaceted life and work; a career grounded in her Arab heritage which faced many challenges over a period of five decades.
