Daniel Georges graduated in 2002 from ALBA (Académie Libanaise des Beaux Arts) with a Master Degree in Architecture. A passion for comics and illustration reflects throughout his personal work. Poetic and emotional, George's sketches depict very personal feelings and situations.

He obviously draws inspiration from common things that surround him, combining modern imagery with chimeric textures and colors to create very disturbing layouts.
Lots of poetry!
