Paperplane is an honest look into both our past and present. Within this time capsule, you will find a collection of pop culture vestiges that have been woven into the fabric of society.
From the archaic cartoons we willingly fell in love with, to the multitude of crazes and trends that we experienced amongst our peers in an attempt to invite all that is cool into our world. This homage requires us to slow down, reminisce, and embrace nostalgia.
In a world where everything has become disposable, we have grown indifferent to consequences; only seeking instant gratification during a time when the only thing that matters is what’s coming next.
These icons have come to define our generation that grew up in the age of technology and relentless bombardment of the senses. Because of overexposure, we have grown numb and cynical to these stimuli that are buried deep within our subconscious.
Paperplane is a realization of how things were and how they are now; a subliminal trip into our impulsive nature.
Because without our past, who are we really?
By Jules Bakhos
Come and join us on Thursday 8th of March 2018 for an incredible and unique solo arts exhibition by Jules Bakhos, a 25-year old artist, product and interior designer born and raised in Beirut, Lebanon.
After graduating from L’Academie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (ALBA), Jules quickly embarked on a career as a freelance artist.
Inspired by his travels, pop culture and street art, he combines mixed media such as ripped up magazine and movie poster collages with layers of his own paintings and graphite drawings, sometimes even adding different kinds of lighting installations.
