About Jamil Molaeb
Jamil Molaeb was born in Lebanon in 1948. He studied in the US and has a Master’s Degree from Pratt institute, New York. He also earned a PhD in Art Education from the University of Ohio.

He has regularly exhibited with the Galerie Janine Rubeiz in a number of Art Fairs in Geneva, Strasbourg, Abu Dhabi Art and Art Dubai. Molaeb’s work has been sold in many international auctions.
