Naji Chalhoub


Naji Chalhoub is best known for his affective, scribbled line drawings of seemingly torturous subjects whose hollowed-out eyes and sinister smiles unsettle the viewer. His series The Mouth of Madness attest to the psychological dimension captured in his works, in which manic lines drawn in black ink – with the occasional inclusion of sparse red lines – mark feelings of depression, anxiety and fear.
