Lebanon, You Won’t Believe Where This French Artist Is Going

World renowned French artist Freddish is landing in Beirut sooner than you think! The street-artist will perform exclusively in Lebanon’s most multifunctional space, The Koozpace. Visitors will witness Freddish reviving recycled material into huge steel installations that are sure to wow.

Get the chance to experience the world of sci-fi first-hand on May 2nd at 7 P.M at The Koozpace. The French Gallery Marie Demange will also temporarily showcase a dozen of his graffiti creations until the 11th of May.

Among the first of urban artists to exhibit their work in the Salon D’automne in Paris, Freddish has worked with artists, bands and rappers who performed in Olympia, Cigale or the grand hall of la Villette. Freddish continuously draws his artistic inspiration from the 1980s to 2000s whether it be hip-hop, manga, cartoon characters, and the like.

Emerging street artists in Lebanon will particularly enjoy the two-day masterclass Freddish is planning on hosting. Working on a mural, managing their creative space, and mastering techniques are on the program.

What brings this internationally renowned artist to the middle of Yarzeh, you ask? The answer would be, The Koozpace, a multi-function space centered around productivity and creativity. Set in a green, secure, and serene environment with a spacious rooftop overlooking Beirut, the Mediterranean sea, and the surrounding mountains, the space speaks for itself.

This avant-garde hub offers you a full-blown gym, swimming pool, coworking space, and furnished apartments available for rent.
So, you could say that a Koozpace member is living the dolce vita, by all means. Here is a rundown of a day at The Koozpace: gym members will benefit from fitness facilities and dynamic classes like steel combat, dancing, taebo, and others. After a sweaty workout sesh, grab your laptop and head to their lavish working space.

A 200 sqm space filled with all the amenities you can think of like high-speed internet, kitchenette (free beverages and snacks, yes please!) and meeting rooms. You can always unwind by the pool, now that tanning season is just around the corner and try to break your swim lap record.

Finally, whether you are up for a staycation or just need a place to crash in for a few days, don’t hesitate to take a peek at The Koozpace’s charming furnished apartments. BTW, renting office space or an apartment grants you discounted or sometimes free access (depending on the package) to the fitness facilities. We don’t know about you, but we are already on our way to book a tour at The Koozpace to pick out a membership plan that suits us.

Make sure to stay up to date with the many cultural and business events The Koozpace hosts and be sure to attend Freddish’ anticipated show! We bet your artistic friends will gag at the opportunity, so let them know.
