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.

Bella Figura

JULIA LICHTBLAU
The best garden in Brooklyn is like Fred Astaire / Charming but inaccessible. / A private creation for public viewing. / I look down into it from my living room, / Its spilling vines and spruce hedge-tops lend cachet to my garden.

Digging Out Potatoes

BESIK KHARANAULI
I receive a letter from mother, / in which, / with a teacher’s stern tone, / she asks me to visit her. / I am busy with other tasks, / or simply prefer to go elsewhere— / to a parallel Georgia / with vineyards, / figs and chestnut trees. / But no, I have to dig out potatoes.
