Hayat Chabban

Hayat Chabban is a 19-year-old calligraffiti artist from Tripoli in Lebanon.

After years practising at home – in old notepads and on the wall above her bed – Chaaban took her drawing onto the streets last year.

Working on walls down quiet backstreets in Tripoli’s port and among the hustle and bustle of the souks, Chaaban’s work reaches across sectarian divides, working and interacting with members of the city’s majority Sunni and minority Christian populations.
