Mouna Rebeiz

Mouna Rebeiz

Mouna Rebeiz was born in a family of artists, and demonstrated from an early age creativity in abundance. Growing up amidst musicians, artists and poets; notes and verse later influenced her work.

Fascinated by the human being and its psyche, she studied psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris and at Saint Joseph´s University. She then started a family and spent a large part of her time travelling between Europe and North America.

In 1995 Mouna began at the Cepiade Studio where she met Alix De La Source, speaker at the Louvre and specialist of 17th and 18th century painting techniques. She introduced her to the techniques of the Grand masters and helped her to develop her style. From Abraham Pincas, artist and director of Beaux Arts de Paris; to Mohamad Al Rawas, Lebanese artist and professor of Beaux Arts, Mouna perfected her technique.

Mouna exhibits chiefly in Paris, with work shown in the Salon des Independants, Daniel Besseiche Gallery, Galerie Hubert Konrad, Galerie Pierre Alain Challier, Foundation Paul Ricard and The Saatchi Gallery- her first solo exhibition in London.

Mouna´s latest collection is a development of her work with the female nude, this time seen wearing the male symbol of virility: the Tarbouche. Traditionally worn by men in the Levant and across the Middle East. Caught between two worlds the female bodies jostle against the male trophy, expressing a powerful new freedom which is both dominant and submissive.
