After a few years working as a make-up artist in the media industry, under the tutelage of the legendary Dick Smith, Jihane Mossalim discovers a new passion: painting.
Since 2009, she has exhibited her work throughout North America and Europe. Her paintings explore the memories of strangers from old black and white photographs she finds here and there. She creates new scenes on canvas from these original compositions, these family photos or these moments of past life. She interferes in the intimacy of these strangers, and gives a second life to these forgotten memories.
