Yan Pei-Ming: Painting the History

Francesco Bonami, Karim Sultan

Questioning the dominance of digital photography, Yan Pei-Ming demonstrates the unique power of painting as a modern medium for capturing iconic figures and historical events. Painting the History includes over 100 watercolour portraits of influential Arab figures, both from the political and cultural realms. His portraits include depictions of former Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Lebanese singer Fairuz.
