- 4 - Carla Salem (Graphic Designer/ ArD faculty)

Carla R. Salem (Lebanese, 1978) is a papermaker and printmaker whose work explores words and language.

Having lived in Japan for seven years, Salem merges Japanese language and culture with her native Arabic through an exploration of the surface and texture of self made mulberry paper (washi) and its relationship and interaction with light.

Salem continuously develops her own printmaking techniques while teaching printmaking as well as papermaking, at the American University of Beirut.
She is also currently teaching at the Lebanese University of FIne Arts.

Her work is currently on show at AGIAL Art Gallery, Hamra.

The current exhibit is entitled "twofold", March 31 - April 23, 2016.
