Lebanese Dubai-based artist Magda Malkoun navigates the intricate psychology of displacement and the female experience in the Middle East. Captivated by human dynamics and their ripple effects on society and the environment, her creations mirror the ebb and flow of our collective experiences. Malkoun crafts meticulously curated photo collages. Her female portraits become vessels for cherished memories and cultural panoramas, a testament to the boundless potential inherent in culture. Her journey of self-discovery molds these artistic expressions, resonating deeply with her life as a Lebanese artist navigating a world steeped in contrasting cultures and conflict. Rooted in Lebanon’s rich heritage, her art interweaves universal themes of resilience and metamorphosis. Through a deliberate, painstaking process, Malkoun crafts realistic faces through grids, measurements, and collages, adding a unique dimension, and encapsulating the strength and resilience of the portrayed subjects. Through her art, Magda invites viewers to embrace their strength and the transformative power within.

I explore the psychology of connections formed amid displacement, drawing from influences like Gibran, Klimt, Modigliani, and Picasso. Fascinated by human dynamics and their impact on societal and environmental exchanges, my work reflects the oscillation of our experiences. It delves into understanding identity and the potential for transformation in nations, acknowledging the dual nature of collective memory. Through carefully curated photo collages, I craft portraits of diverse women, embodying cherished memories and cultural visions—a testament to our culture’s endless possibilities and a message of hope and acceptance born from my journey of self-discovery.
