Beauty in diversity

Kristel Bechara, an award-winning contemporary artist from Lebanon is best known for her dynamic patterns and expressive colours. Her artwork demonstrates the revolutionary creation of photographic imagery with oil, acrylic and giclée printmaking mediums to depict emotion.


For over a decade, Kristel has been creating artwork that represents a sense of joy and freedom of the spirit. Her methods involve characteristic stencil-like drawings and sketching combined with modern mixed media lines to form multi-layered fantasy paintings.


Kristel Bechara’s artform has evolved into a unique flair defining her artistic style. Her growth as an artist has been complimented with a great degree of success including recognition at World Art Dubai 2018, where her Beauty in Diversity collection received the UAE Resident Artist Award.


Her success has been further cemented with great demand from galleries in Tokyo, Milano, Brussels, and France and is regularly purchased by enthusiasts globally.


Kristel’s work adorns walls in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo, Delhi, Texas, New York as well as in Sidney, Zurich, Istanbul, Vancouver, Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, and across the Middle East. An original piece can also be found at London’s Standard Chartered Bank HQ as well as limited-editions in luxury furniture stores and fine dining restaurants across the UAE.


A wife and mother of two, Kristel Bechara is an avid traveller and explores worldwide cities to acquire her inspiration. In her leisure time, she enjoys playing tennis and spending time with her family.


Kristel is often inspired by life and joyous moments, which result in the development of new collections that she paints in her Dubai studio and are exhibited regularly.
