SAMIR SAMMOUN

Samir Sammoun was born in 1952 in a quaint Lebanese village perched atop the Chouf Mountain, 40 km south of Beirut. To this day, the artist vividly recalls the colourful Mediterranean landscape of his childhood. At age 21, Samir immigrated to Canada where he obtained degrees in electronic engineering and telecommunications. Since graduation, he has pursued his professional career as well as his passion, painting.

Chris Klimantiris, who began representing Sammoun in 1996, provides an eloquent reaction to the artists work. He boasts, "The first time that I saw Samirs paintings, I was fascinated by his refined technique. I felt like a time traveler, transported to turn-of-the-century Paris and the Impressionists."

Sammoun's originality and unique style have caught the attention of viewers, collectors, and art lovers in Canada and the United States. When he first showed his work at ArtExpo in New York in 1996, the reaction was immediate and positive. Robert L. Mooney, Director of the Galleries J.R. Mooney, San Antonio, Texas wrote the following: "The fresh colorful impressionistic renditions presented in his artwork have been received with unprecedented enthusiasm… Samir is a fresh and exciting talent depicting the landscapes he sees in rich colours with his own wonderfully unique impressionistic style."
