Meet Zena el Khalil

Zena el khalil Born in London in 1976, el Khalil spent her childhood in Nigeria and then attended high school in England. She then went to Beirut where she attained her undergraduate degree from the American University in Beirut. In 2002 el Khalil received her Masters of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Beirut I Love You is Zena el Khalil’s rollicking yet tender memoir about living in a city that thrives on contrasts and contradictions.

This is the story of Zena, a young woman who has fallen under the spell of a city that threatens to engulf her in war, grief and love affairs.

Zena el Khalil works in a variety of formats ranging from painting, installation, performance, mixed media, writing, and collage. Themes that are central to her work include issues of violence as well as gender using materials found throughout Beirut.
