Gibran Khalil Gibran at Petit Palais in Paris
«One of my dearest dreams is this – somewhere, a body of work, say fifty or seventy-five pictures will be hung together in a large city, where people would see and perhaps love them.» With these words, Gibran Khalil Gibran once expressed his deepest wishes. Driven by her belief in the art of Gibran, Cynthia Sarkis Perros- LUXURY LIMITED EDITION gathered all her efforts during many years and worked very hard to make his dream come true. From «The Gibran Museum» in Bcharre to the «Petit Palais» in Paris, Gibran’s paintings were transported to give the international audience a glimpse of his art, through the exhibition «The Life of Gibran». Mysticism reigns in his artworks, revealing his interest in the mysteries of religion and our relation to God. The painter focuses in his art on deciphering what is still yet to be discovered in our humanity. As Gibran said: «Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed».
On March 1st, 2018 at the «Petit Palais», Cynthia Sarkis Perros – LUXURY LIMITED EDITION organized a gala dinner, gathering the most influential people and VIPs to honor the art of Gibran Khalil Gibran, celebrating this Lebanese talent and his humanitarian art. This wouldn’t have been possible without the great support of the Grand Benefactor to this initiative, Mr. André Georges Iliovits, who has contributed in promoting his beloved country, Lebanon, and sharing Lebanese art with the Parisian public.It wouldn’t have also been possible without the support of the Gibran National Committee, that helped introducing Khalil Gibran as an artist and not only as a writer and poet to the international audience.
