Farid Mansour - Sculptor & Painter
1929 - 2010
“In 1977 (the beginnings of the Lebanese civil war) I decided to return to Beirut leaving behind me all my successes I started to harvest in London including British citizenship. I decided to return hoping that through my art and my plume I can participate in shaping an evolved society within a country where justice and equality rule. I decided to return now lest I would be shocked should I return later on, to find a country strange to me, a country that does not resemble me and a society with no intellectual and artistic culture, a country driven solely by materialistic motives and primitive instincts”
14/06/2019– Lebanese Ministry of Culture / Mountada Insan / Lebanese Artists Association for Painters and Sculptors / Syndicate of Lebanese Plastic Artists , organised a tribute event in Mansour's home town of Choueifat under the tittle:
A Tribute to Farid Mansour
