Samia Osseiran Jumblatt

 

 

ARTIST BIO

Born in Lebanon in 1944, Samia Osseiran Junblat studied art and graphic design in Beirut, Florence and Tokyo. In 1973, She earned a scholarship to study Japanese graphic art at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts. On her return, She founded an NGO, Artisana of Saida and South Lebanon, which is still functioning today.

Samia held many individual exhibitions in Beirut, Florence, Osaka and Tokyo and participated in several group exhibitions in Lebanon and abroad. She contemplates birth and death, nature and the universe, shifting from abstract symbols to realistic images, flamboyant flowers to prickly cacti, bitter lemon to fresh vegetables, thus expressing her feelings through drawing and painting flowers, fruits and tree trunks. Samia feels that she "is always following an unknown light that pervades everything, that emanates from the soul and from nature".
