Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1972, Annie Kurkdjian received her masters in Management in 1994 before turning to Fine Arts at the Lebanese University. Her provocative yet playful paintings are tainted with dark humor and depict the often violent and bizarre side of human psychology. She exhibited in both Lebanon and France and participated in many collective shows, namely the 29th and the 30th Salon d’Automne at the Sursock Museum where she received the Jury’s Special mention for her work.
