Among the first to open up a gallery in Gemmayzeh, ten years ago, Fadi Mogabgab was able to bring his gallery back to life after it had been closed down and then re-opened. Fadi believes that art in Lebanon is very well held, and insists that the Lebanese people have an open mind when it comes to art. “I have sold things here I couldn’t sell to the French public,” he said. “Here they are more curious. They want something artistic, not just to match the carpets.” He has since done many exhibitions for great artists and has fulfilled the art desires of many.
