Dana Hassan 

Artist Statement

Dana Hassan was born in Beirut amid civil war and political instability. She still lives and works in a city that she loves despite everything. Dana’s passion for art began earlier in her childhood where she used to spend summertime with her family at a small village in Mount Lebanon, sketching with a piece of charcoal under a tree, some of Rodin’s sculptures. She grew that love for art throughout the years with some encouragement from her teachers at school. Even after completing her BA in Business Administration at the American University of Beirut, she resumed her art studies at the Académie Libanaise des Beaux Arts (ALBA) where she completed her BA in Illustration and Comics.

Dana works today at the intersection of conceptual art and storytelling. As a communication consultant, she believes that art can be a powerful way to communicate and engage with communities on global matters by making a strong impact, changing perceptions, or calling for action.

In October 2019, Dana was shortlisted among 15 international artists to help raise awareness on the impacts of disaster and environmental changes on our communities and societies. Her latest work, If Not Now, When? was featured in The Art of Resilience curated exhibition at the World Bank headquarter-Washington DC.

Dana was, also, a second prize winner at The International Festival of Comics in Beirut in 2004.
