Bourj Hammoud cityscape, 2010

USD 800

I paint and photography Beirut cityscape since the year 2000. The Beirut I depicted in my paintings and photos is an environment to which I am used to, and I do not want to lose. It is familiar to me since my childhood. When I leave this environment for a while, I always come back to it with some unexplained nostalgia. I wanted to give a luminous and radiant character to this environment; that Lebanese sun that overwhelms the city every day. This is the environment towards which I feel authenticity, security, and grin. These houses that we see in the painting depict the countenance of a welcoming soul, a mysterious attraction, spontaneity, and touching character. It is the soul-filling song of the houses, a sunny afternoon poetry.

Maral Der Boghossian has dreamed of cities since childhood. As a young girl growing up in Beirut, she would walk with her mother to one of her grandmother’s houses after school, each of whom lived in the neighborhoods of Nor Hajin and Bourj Hammoud. The image of the afternoon sun shining on the facades of the buildings that were built and inhabited by Armenian residents has been imprinted upon her memory as a recurrent vision. Upon graduating with a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from Faculté des Beaux Arts et d’Architecture, the view of the skyline from the balcony in her home triggered her nostalgic recollection of the buildings she used to walk by that were constructed in a halcyon era when Beirut felt safe and prosperous. She sat on her rooftop and began to paint the colorful cityscapes that now compose much of her artistic oeuvre.
