Rafik Majzoub is a distinguished painter and graphic artist, born 1971 in Amman, Jordan. He is a self-taught “outsider artist” who claimed an important role in the Lebanese art scene after he moved to Beirut in 1992. Majzoub’s dexterity thrives through tension, impatience and velocity. He favors carelessness of the exact calculated detail over the improvised and expressive. In 2015, Rafik moved back to Amman, where he currently lives and works.
