Chaouki Choukini is a Paris-based Lebanese sculptor who creates distinctive, multiscalar sculptures in exotic hardwoods and bronze. Born in Lebanon, he studied art at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. His sculptures function as windows to his childhood and the landscape of South Lebanon, and architectural foundations abound in the oftentimes detailed nature of sculptures. Tensions between corners, edges and cubist elements, juxtaposed with softly layered biomorphic forms are central to his oeuvre, along with references to Japanese minimalist aesthetics.
