Born in Lebanon and based in Dubai, Kristel Bechara is an award-winning contemporary artist who has quickly established herself as the rising star of the Middle Eastern art world.
Recognized for her dynamic patterns and expressive colours, Kristel’s artwork consists of the revolutionary creation of photographic imagery using oil, acrylic and giclée printmaking mediums to depict complex emotions and also portray the human condition. Her artistic process involves creating stencil-like drawings that are combined with modern mixed media lines to form multi-layered fantasy paintings.
Kristel’s work has been displayed around the world to great appreciation and demand, especially from galleries in Tokyo, Milano, Brussels, and France. She has received high acclaim in UAE as well, notably winning the UAE Resident Artist Award at the 2018 World Art Dubai for her collection, Beauty in Diversity.
As a wife and mother of two, Kristel is an avid traveller who finds inspiration in exploring cities, art museums and galleries. She dedicates her mornings to creating art in her studio, while her afternoons and evenings are spent with her family.
Kristel currently works on her art from her studio in Onyx Tower, Dubai while her gallery is located at Gate Avenue, Dubai International Financial Centre.
