Rima Chahine is an intuitive abstract artist with a multicultural background with her Middle-Eastern roots and upbringing in Montreal, Canada. Her artistic journey began as an art collector and consultant that bloomed into her own authentic style of materializing feelings, and love for the universe on a canvas. She is a creative, artistic and sophisticated individual pursuing a simple yet deep and emotional connection to the world which is expressed in the artwork encompassing her passion, personal feelings, and experiences. Painting for her is an intimate endeavor with no fear of failure and no forced destination but a flow experience of thoughts, colors, and feelings that breathe soul into her finished piece.
