David Habchy

David Habchy, born in 1985 in Beirut, belongs to a new generation of Arabic artists working in the fields of illustration, graphics and animation. Even as a child, he already started experimenting with projects involving the conceptual combination of photography, graphic elements, theatre and music. He completed his studies of Computer Graphics and Animation at the Notre-Dame University in Lebanon, and soon afterward taught courses there himself. Today he works as a freelancer in the field of visual arts and is involved in design and comic projects, making the work of young Lebanese artists accessible to a wider audience. In addition, he develops concepts for music videos and animated short films. When he is not traveling through his country giving workshops for children and youths in which he discusses his work and projects, he lives in the attic of an old Lebanese house.
