The artist

Mouna Rebeiz


Even as a small child, Mouna Rebeiz’s creativity and special fervour for the plastic arts were manifested. Born into a family of artists — musicians, painters and poets — her paintings resonate with the music and verse that infused her childhood.

Fascinated by the complexities of the human psyche, Mouna studied Psychology at the Sorbonne and at Saint Joseph University .Once she completed her Master’s degree in Psychology, she started a family of her own, dividing her time between Europe and the North American continent. In 1995, she was accepted at the Atelier Cépiade in Paris, where she met Alix de la Source. A specialist of 17th and 18th century painting, and lecturer at the Louvre, Alix introduced her to the techniques of the Great Masters and helped her evolve her personal style.

From her courses in patinas in Paris ,to those on the Renaissance, from the expertise of Abraham Pincas, painter and head of the Painting and Techniques Atelier at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris to that of the great Lebanese painter, Mohamed el Rawas, her professor at the Institute of Fine Arts in Beirut, Mouna continually re ned her technique, to better capture the pulse of life in her paintings.
