Rima Almozayyen

Born in Damascus in 1977, Rima Almozayyen holds a B.A. in Fine Arts Education from Arafat University in Gaza (1999) and an M.A. in Design from Helwan University in Cairo (2008). A scholar as well as an artist, her Master's thesis examined the use of ancient Canaanite symbols in contemporary Palestinian visual art, and her paintings have been the subject of six solo exhibitions, the most recent of which, "The Body and Memory of Place," took place in Egypt in 2006.

She has also participated in a large number of regional and international group exhibitions and workshops, showing her work in France, the United States, London, Dubai, Amman, and Cairo, among other places. Since 2011, Almozayyen's artistic activities have been centered in Italy, where her focus has been on performance pieces and film and video art.

Almozayyen has also nurtured a career in public sector arts-based project and talent management as well as in arts education. From 2009 to 2011, she headed the Culture and Arts section of the media center of the Embassy of the Occupied Palestinian Territories in Cairo. Earlier, she spent four years (2002-06) as Deputy Director of the Children's Culture desk at the Ministry of Culture in Palestine, and a year as Head of Talent Development (2000). She has taught courses in both Ceramics and Design at Al-Aqsa University in Gaza.


Rima's diverse experience and education in the arts has influenced the development of her unique aesthetic vision and painterly technique. She describes her style as abstract-symbolic, and the main subject of her work as the Palestinian woman. Moved by her belief in the power of color and simplified symbolic shapes to move people to aesthetic enjoyment and reflection, she is known for her distinctly rich palette and strong visual imagery.
