Dalia Baassiri is a Lebanese artist born in Sidon in 1981. Since her early childhood, drawing has been a primary tool of expression. She graduated from the Lebanese American University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design and explored both the web and printing fields to diversify her experience.

Lately, she pursued a Master Degree in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, where she took part in various group shows. Dalia is currently based in Beirut.

Artist Statement
"Lines are everywhere but we cannot see them. Like cells, they progressively multiply, expand and intertwine, forming endless possibilities of forms. I perceive the world as a giant spherical drawing room inhabited by beings and elements that are constantly in motion. Their impulses push them from one point to another, creating a series of linear paths. Each being or element has a corresponding destination mapped and documented within this drawing. The wave heads to the shore, the cloud accompanies the wind, the plant reaches for the light, and the human chases happiness from one place to another. Accordingly, their existence consists of the sum of their own trajectories, which ultimately shape their fate. In such a context, everything on this planet plays the role of the artist.I am currently exploring my experience of the world by highlighting the quotidian and overlooked activities such as window cleaning and floor sweeping, and allowing them to infiltrate and shape my practice. The process raises questions concerning my approach and understanding of art. Graphite is the primary medium enabling me to manifest my concerns. I consider it as the mediator between art and the familiar. It plays the role of a conventional drawing tool yet enacts the dust and the dirt of everyday life. Its solubility generates a substantial muddy effect that stimulates my engagement with the surface."
