Life in Plastik
- Plastik has a significant social media presence, with over 1 million followers on Instagram alone
- Elissa, Miley Cyrus, RuPaul and Paris Hilton are just some names that have been featured on the cover of Plastik magazine
Beirut born and based visual artist and creative director Eli Rezkallah founded the visual arts magazine Plastik in 2009. It was unlike anything that had been produced in the Middle East previously, with photographs of drag queens, nudity, bold colour, dramatic staging, and cutting edge visual stories by himself and other artists.
In addition to the magazine, Plastik is now a studio, a gallery, and a social media presence. This book is a best-of celebration of Eli Rezkallah’s work from Plastik, capturing his accessible, provocative, and socially astute work in a single volume.
“Plastik’s gift to the world is beauty, colour, magic and imagination. The gift is more important today than ever before.” - RuPaul
