Represented by Green Art Gallery in Dubai, Chaouki Choukini is a Lebanese-born, Paris-based artist, who is known for his bold yet poetic wooden sculptures. It was Choukini’s early experiences of observing landscapes in his native South Lebanon that initially inspired him to pursue a decades-long career in sculpture. Aside from showing his works in the UAE, the award-winning Choukini has been widely exhibited in France. In addition, his sculptures have been acquired by Amman’s National Gallery of Fine Arts, Sharjah’s Barjeel Art Foundation, and Paris’ Centre National des Arts Plastiques, among others.
Art Dubai Portraits is a film series that provides a short perspective into the lives and workspaces of artists that are connected to the fair through its programming or participating galleries. The Art Dubai Portraits are produced in collaboration with Forward James Filmmakers.
