Suzi Nassif was born in Batroun, North of Lebanon where she completed her secondary schooling before moving to Dubai in the early 1990s. Suzi pursued a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing at the American University in Dubai, graduating in 2001. Driven by a passion for art and literature, Suzi painted relentlessly and went on to take various courses in photography and graphic design. She stumbled upon Paulo Coelho’s books and then met the author in 2003, going on to become his Middle East agent and spearheading the distribution and translation of his books into Arabic.
Suzi participated in various exhibitions where she displayed a variety of conceptual artworks. She also had the opportunity to auction her work in different charity organizations in order to help children to gain an education. She also commissioned art for different audiences in Dubai and Lebanon. Suzi is currently practising dimensional art and looking different perspective for her upcoming exhibition.ist Statement
“From a very young age, I was aware of my orientation towards the visual arts. My notebooks were filled with various sketches, artistic fonts and vivid colours. I took – and continue to take – pleasure in finding beauty in everything. My eyes and my mind have become accustomed to admiring and analysing details, colours and textures. I had always known I would follow my artistic dreams, wherever they make take me. Perhaps what inspired me most about Paulo Coelho is his quote, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to help you achieve it.”
Over the years, I visited museums and galleries and explored many design-related areas and I am happy to have become a self-taught artist. Aside from basic art classes in high school, I pursued photography classes and explored different design software’s. The knowledge base I continue to expand has allowed me to sharpen my artistic skills to be able to realise, visualise and express my thoughts and emotions in various media which include oil, acrylic, photography, and digital art. For me, it essentially revolves around the need to create and the art of creation, or in the words of Picasso: “Painting is a blind man’s profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.”
