about

"Urban Toys" chronicles Nadim Karam and Atelier Hapsituss recent creations of relief and rebellion in the city. Working out of Beirut, they make their own rules for urban art with work that is, in the words of Peter Cook, unnervingly original. Projects include groundbreaking work in post-war Beirut and post-Communist Prague, sculptures for the sidewalks of London and Tokyo, a poetic project in Todaiji temple in Nara, and the Sandridge Bridge project on the Yarra River for the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006. Their work in the creation of dream pockets has grown in importance, given the increasing number of cities that have to add violence and terror to the pressures of urban life.
Nadim Karam has been creating urban art projects for over a decade.
