A Step Beyond Ordinary
July 29 – August 18, 2022
Reception: Thursday, August 4, 2022 6-8 PM

Born in Chile and from a Lebanese family, Bechara Baroudi fuses elements of both countries into a maximalist urban pop look. An avid traveler, he developed a passion for Japanese culture, particularly the works of Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama. As a result, his style possesses the over-the-top, two-dimensional quality of Superflat art, featuring characters inspired by manga and tokidoki. However, far from being a mere aesthetic endeavor, Baroudi’s oeuvre hides subtle layers of social criticism. Amidst an avalanche of teddy bears, robots, aeroplanes, and all sorts of odd creatures, Catholicism and Islam, East and West, technology and history peacefully cohabit. Everyone is invited to this huge mad party, without distinction of race, gender, or religion. The feeling is very much like that of a child swimming in a pool of candy. Baroudi wants us to know that, in the end, beyond the destruction of war and the senseless divide that cuts across nations, only love stands to be the winner.

Baroudi holds a degree in Graphic Design and Architecture from Universidad Diego Portales, in Santiago de Chile. A self-proclaimed “artistholic,” he paints on anything he can put his hands on: clothing, shoes, wallpaper, sculptures. He has exhibited in Chile, Argentina, Dubai, Qatar, and Lebanon and counts the likes of Pepsi Arabia, UNICEF, Apple Chile, Coca Cola Jordan, and Montblanc among his clients.
