MOLAEB Jamil

Jamil Molaeb lives and works in Baysour, in the Chouf region of Lebanon, where he was born. Molaeb started his artistic career in the seventies, after training under renowned artists such as Chafic Abboud and Paul Guiragossian at the Fine Arts Institute of the Lebanese University.

 

Craving further discoveries and exposure to the world, he spent a year visiting Algeria and, in 1984, enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at New York’s Pratt Institute, to later obtain a doctorate in artistic education from Ohio State University.

 

Back in his native country in 1989, Molaeb started teaching art at the Lebanese University and the Lebanese American University of Beirut. He kept on exhibiting canvases inspired as much by Western art history as by ancient Egyptian, Sumerian and Babylonian art. Not one to be confined within a single style, Molaeb easily switches from village scenes to minimalist compositions with squares of bright colours. When he paints a landscape, it is to celebrate the nature that surrounds him through the reproduction of the sensations and emotions it inspires him. 

 

Apart from painting, Molaeb sculpts, draws and creates mosaics. He has been exhibiting since 1966, in group shows in Beirut, New York, and England and in solo shows in Beirut and the United States. His works were also featured in contemporary art fairs such as Europ’art (Geneva), St’art (Strasbourg), Art Paris Abu Dhabi and Art Dubai.
