Arwa Seifeddine graduated with High Distinction from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure Des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) from Paris, France. She is an interior architect, artist-painter and adjunct faculty at the Lebanese American University. She joined LAU (formerly BUC) in 1984 teaching interior design, color theory and foundation courses. Her personal artwork (painting) incorporates spiritual and architectural elements. It seeks moments from within, focusing on the ambiguity lying between the interior and the exterior in abstract architectural spaces. The hidden dimension in “Space” remains the main search in her art. Her first solo exhibition was held at the UNESCO Palace in Paris in 1988, followed by two other solo shows in 1996 and 2012 at Agial Art Gallery Beirut, Lebanon. She also participated in many collective exhibits in Lebanon and overseas. Arwa Seifeddine is a member of the Lebanese Artists Association for Painting and Sculpture. Her work features in many private collections, and is displayed in the permanent collection of Sursock Museum.
