ANACHAR BASBOUS  



Anachar Basbous was born in 1969 in Rachana, a village of open-air sculpture, in a family of artists: his father, Michel Basbous, was a sculptor, and his mother is a writer and poet. He made his first sculpture at the age of 10 years. He completed his secondary studies in Beirut; then he went to Paris to continue his studies at the ENSAAMA (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d'Art) where he specialized in architectural wall design. When he came back to Lebanon in 1992, he opened his own sculpture workshop in Rachana where he created many works of art in modern mosaic and he achieved many projects of wall sculpture. In 1996, he stopped the mosaic work and dedicated himself to stone, wood and metal sculpture, as well as wall sculpture. His works of art are spread in Lebanon and abroad, in public places, hotels, private residences and gardens. In 2008, he designed and achieved the memorial of prime minister Rafic Hariri in Beirut downtown. Three sculptures made of bronze, one of them is more than ten meters high. His sculptures appear in many private collections as well as in public places in Lebanon, France, United States, Canada, and United Arab Emirates.... Anachar Basbous works and creates at his workshop in Rachana where he lives with his wife and his two children.
