Born in Dakar in 1951, Claude Moufarege spent her formative years in Senegal before returning with her family to Lebanon in 1960. In 1976, she received her diploma in Architecture from 'ESIB' amidst the bombardment and instability of the Civil War. She then moved to Paris where she began her architectural career, working at several firms, such as Dar el Handasah, Viguier-Jodry and Calatrava. Moufarege decided to rediscover her first love, which was painting. She attended workshops and ateliers of prominent artists, working with David Drey in the UK and Michele Goalard in Paris. She has since exhibited her work worldwide, such as at the Musee Robert Mouawad in Lebanon, Galerie Artitude in Paris, and at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition in London. "Beyrouth, Le Monde," her first solo exhibition at Artspace Hamra, is being held from December 7, 2016 to January 7, 2017.
