This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Baissour, Lebanon in 1948, Jamil Molaeb studied at the Institute of Fine Arts of the Lebanese University—where he studied under such prominent figures as Chafic Abboud and Paul Guiragossian—before being awarded a one-year scholarship to attend the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Algeria.

Residing in Lebanon during the first half of the Lebanese Civil War, he continued to be an active member of the local art scene despite the outbreak of large-scale violence, exhibiting individually and collectively (such as with the Lebanese Painters and Sculptors Association), while teaching at Beirut’s Dar El-Moalemin.

In the 1980s he traveled to the US where he obtained a Masters in Fines Arts from New York’s Pratt Institute* and a PhD in Art Education from Ohio State University.

After returning to Lebanon in the early 1990s, he began teaching at the Lebanese American University and later returned to a full-time position in the art department of the Lebanese University, where he had been an instructor in the 1960s.

Throughout his time abroad, Molaeb exhibited in the Arab world, the US and Europe. A pioneer of contemporary Lebanese painting, Molaeb has explored a range of styles and approaches.

His massive oeuvre includes still lifes, portraits, genre scenes, landscapes, images from the civil war, and colorist abstractions. An accomplished artist, in addition to his paintings, he has produced a large collection of sculpture, etchings*, woodcuts*, drawings and mosaics* with equal mastery.

In recent years, he has released a series of autobiographical monographs* through Fine Arts Publishing (Beirut) to great fanfare.
