Khaled Sabsabi spent his childhood in Lebanon and moved with his family to Australia in 1978, settling in multicultural western Sydney. He specialises in multimedia and site-specific installations, often involving people on the margins of society.

In 2003, he returned to Lebanon for the first time, which led to a reengagement with the region and its people. He continues to work across borders, cultures and disciplines to make artworks that challenge extreme principles and actions.

Sabsabi received the Blake Art Prize in 2011 and has exhibited in more than forty-five solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Lebanon, New Zealand, Poland and Spain.
