The award was created in 2014 and is aimed toward selling comics, editorial cartoons and illustration within the Arab world by the popularity of the wealthy expertise and inventive achievement of artists from the area. “Mahmoud Kahil award is a part of the Mu’taz & Rada Sawwaf Arabic Comics Initiative a tutorial physique for the research of Arabic Comics on the American College of Beirut”.
I’ve been following Jorj for a few years now, particularly following the 2019 revolution in Lebanon and his sensible comics on the Lebanese political scene. He’s an achieved designer, painter, cartoonist and illustrator and has printed his personal graphic novel again in 2012 (Ville avoisinant la terre). Final yr, Jorj produced with a bunch of gifted Lebanese Alephia 2053: the primary dystopian animation film produced in Lebanon.
Congrats to Jorj and all of the winners!
