Ayla Hibri

Beirut, Lebanon/ (b)1987

Ayla Hibri is a visual multimedia artist currently living between Lebanon and Jordan. For the last decade, Hibri has been in constant travel, shifting environments to maintain a continuum of displacement and discovery. She has collected an expansive archive of visual data on the psychogeography of places and aspects of the human condition. In parallel she paints and draws creatures and worlds far removed from this one, driven by the matter of dreams and active imagination. She has published 2 photography books: A Palm Tree Bows To The Moon (2019) and The Real prince (2015)
