BDC show 2014
“Of flesh, soul, bodies and emotion, beings gravitate on the stage of a human odyssey. An oh so human condition, condemned to dream of skies that are further and further away. Splendors and miseries of beings struggling with their demons, because down here, in this babel of bodies, the tower of sins seems well and truly erected.”
Poster and visual design for this new show performed by the Beirut Dance Company and choreographed by Nada Kano. Thank you Antoine Baraka for the pictures.
In a lot of ways 2013 wasn't easy. We bet 2014 is full of surprises. Always look ahead. Cheers to all!
Some illustration introducing a bigger project : new school books for the up-coming year.
"Min Manzel ila Manzel" is a new awareness campaign against Polio disease that just reappeared in Lebanon.
Campaign created by Yelostudio and produced by UNICEF (Lebanon) in collaboration with the Lebanese Ministry of Health.
Through bodies that find and hang on to each other, suspended in space – that of exploration – comes the time of heavy legacies, old wounds, the mad mental race… frolics become dialectics, internal debates.
«Un•re(a)lating» tells the story of adventures and incomprehension between individuals but also within the forces of our environment.
Choreography and artistic direction: Nada Kano
Edited : Chadi Aoun
Filmed : Ely Dagher, Kassim Dabaji
Nothing more than a fast doodle on Flash. When tired of animating, one has to let some steam out.
A recent collection of items I created, mixing different medias such as digital drawing, collages, painting, photo retouching, printing and mounting.
Basically enjoying texture and visuals that remind me of my youth and inspired by old movie posters from the region.
It all started with a series of postcards, and soon evolved into big scale canvas paintings.
Now working on more 3 dimensional objects, and exploring still this endless path of Applied Arts.
My work is presented and sold at Orient 499 Gallery.
KAFA (enough) Violence & Exploitation is a Lebanese non-profit, non-political, non-confessional civil society organization committed to the achievement of gender-equality and non-discrimination, and the advancement of the human rights of women and children.
They came to us with a new daring campaign, against marital abuse of women, and we gave it life. Displayed here is the outdoor visual and the TV spot.
Basicly there is no real law in Lebanon providing protection for abused women. Although in 2009, the Cheaf of Parliament clearly stated a reform in that sense…. since then, women and children keep suffering and dying with no legal backup to protect them. "Paroles Paroles…"
Again this year, another big project has ended : school books for Hachette Antoine.
As always Yelo surrounds itself with several good artists to bring this collection to life; some examples here.
Thank you Maya Fidawi, Joelle Achkar, Chadi Aoun, Patrick Sfeir, Kamal Hakim and Cinzea Sileo.
