Nabil El Jaouhari
Nabil El Jaouhari’s current work consists of elaborate collages on wooden panels. The materials for the collages are his previous oil paintings, prints, and studies, combined with intricate wood burning.
Destruction and violent splitting underlie his work, but the necessity of rejoining, reconciliation, and recreation are at its surface.
Born in Lebanon, Nabil studied fine arts at the Lebanese University Beirut before moving to the United States in 2009 to complete his MFA in painting and printmaking at the University of Missouri.
Nabil currently works and lives in Asheville, NC.
