Pascal Hachem

Pascal Hachem was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1979, where he currently lives and works.

He graduated in Spatial Design in 2002 and he teaches Design at the American University of Beirut and the Lebanese American University in Beirut.

Pascal Hachem’s work is always inspired by the everyday life and he tends to contextualise his way of thinking with the social and political situations in Beirut. His practice is influenced by an unconscious way that he cannot escape. The artist does not impose any set of rules upon himself, but rather he is prompted by nothing but a single impressionable moment, to produce. As a result, he has a varied catalogue of work using various mediums, including his own body and common objects.
