This Swiss Artist’s Stunning Illustrations of Lebanon Is All the Art You Need Today
Swiss graphic designer and illustrator Sraina Noetzli is fond of the beautiful city and people of Beirut. Her visits to the Middle East’s Paris inspired her to start “Beirut Contrasts,” a breathtaking series of illustrations that perfectly capture the city’s magic.
“I had been in Beirut several times and was always fascinated by this huge diversity, by the contrasts between tradition and modernity, romance and toughness, past and future. All expressed through people and their stories but also personally by noticing details and contradictions walking through the streets and alleys every day,” she told Stepfeed.
“The series is an attempt to capture the city’s contrasts by reflecting some of them in the tiniest of details. I am aware of the discussions and activism which have been happening to defend public spaces and buildings that carry heritage against real estate policies and ‘urban development,” she added.
Her dedication to the project and fascination with the city is truly inspiring.
